Effect of Plavix on NO (Nitrogen Monoxide) Production of the Endothelial Function
Effect of Plavix Treatment on NO Production Measured by Laser Doppler Method Referring to Endothelial Function in Patients With Severe Coronary Heart Disease
To determine whether in the laser Doppler flowmetric parameters characteristic of endothelial dysfunction at patients with clinically manifest atherosclerosis any change can be detected at plavix (clopidogrel) treatment. Laser Doppler /LD/ measurement combined with iontophoresis evaluates the effect of acetylcholine /ACh/ /endothelium dependent/ and sodium nitroprusside /NSP/ /endothelium independent/ on the microcirculation of the skin
