Bolanowski M , Kaluzny M , Daroszewski J , Szuba A

Acromegaly causes various cardiovascular dysfunctions, and cardiovascular complications are the main cause of increased mortality in non-cured acromegalic patients. The aim of the study was assessment of flow mediated dilatation (FMD) and the concentration of soluble vascular cell adhesive molecule (sVCAM) as the selected markers of endothelial dysfunction in patients suffering from acromegaly. The study was carried out in 40 patients with acromegaly in various stages of the d...
