Assessment of Flow Mediated Dilation by Pulse Wave Conduction Delay

Junichiro Hayano, Yutaka Yoshida, Emi Yuda
Abstract—This study aimed at developing a new method for assessing flow mediated dilation (FMD) by bilateral differences in pulse conduction time. Delay in pulse conduction time (PCD) that accompanied FMD induced by forearm reactive hyperemia with 5-min avascularization was evaluated. PCD increased with FMD but the correlation coefficient between PCD and FMD was 0.33. PCD may have been influenced by unmeasured factors other than FMD.

Index Terms—Endothelial function, flow mediated dilation, pulse wave velocity, reactive hyperemia.
