Title Endothelial function within adolescents with cardiovascular risk
Author Vladimir Strogiy, Tatiana Woitovich, Marina Borisionok, Natalia Zimnickaya, Galina Zinewich
Abstract Cardiovascular diseases represent the major medical and social problem. The main idea of this article was to estimate the earliest markers of vascular system injury. Endothelial function among teenagers with arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia were studied by ultrasound method, and von Willebrand factor was determined in blood. Endothelial function was changed in 46.9% of persons. Various characters of disturbances of endothelial functions were revealed.
