ENDOTHELIUM FUNCТION ЕVALUAТION IN INFANTS BORN IN FAMILIES WIТH PREDISPOSITION ТО ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION
- arterial hypertension, infants, endothelium function, NO
- Endothelium function in infants with family risk of arterial hypertension development was evaluated by occlusion sample performing and measuring of nitrites, nitrates and citrulline concentration in blood serum. It was determined that the infants examined had decreased (in comparison with control group) concentration of nitrites, nitrates and citrulline, delayed reaching of capillary volume maximal level after removing of deep brachial artery occlusion, accelerated period of blood flow semirestoration. Аll these findings pointed to the less ability to vasodilatation in infants with many cardiovascular risk factors.
