abstract

  • These data demonstrate that (1) chronic angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition improves endothelial function in saphenous veins, and (2) this effect can be further augmented by acute endothelin blockade. These data suggest that antagonism of both angiotensin II and endothelin may be important in attenuating saphenous vein arteriosclerosis.
