abstract

  • The coronary vasculature of cardiac transplant recipients exhibits a generalized endothelial dysfunction of conduit and resistance vessels. L-Arginine improves endothelial dysfunction of both coronary microvasculature and epicardial coronary arteries. The reversibility of epicardial endothelial dysfunction by L-arginine is more likely in vessels with normal wall morphology.
