  2. The Endothelium

  3. Tunica intima LUMEN Tunica adventitia Tunica media

  4. LUMEN Can you see the endothelium? What type of tissue is it? Why?

  5. Note the individual Endothelial Cells

  6. Vasoconstriction and dilatation Normal Vasoconstriction Vasodilatation

  7. Vasoconstriction and dilatation ↓Resistance to flow ↑ Resistance to flow Vasodilatation Vasoconstriction

  8. Endothelial Apoptosis Apoptosed Normal

  9. The EndotheliumAs an Endocrine Organ

  10. The Vascular Endothelium • The inner lining of our bloods vessels is the Endothelium • It plays a central role in regulating the vasomotror tone & • Local homeostasis & control of the coagulation process • Endothelial cells have ‘Sensors’ and release ‘Mediators’ • ‘Mediators’ are the functional molecules on the cell surface

  11. Oxidative stress and Endothelial dysfunction • Oxidative Stress leads to ED • Endothelial dysfunction is mainly due to reduced bioavailability and bioactivity of Nitric Oxide (NO) • It is also a physiological process • Takes place gradually by age and menopause.

  12. The Effects of ED • Oxidant stress and Endothelial dysfunction are major factors for atherosclerosis – the common pathway– • for most of the cardiovascular risk factors including Hypertension, DM, Dyslipidemia and Smoking. • Both endothelial dysfunction and oxidant stress result in clinical conditions - Heart failure, IHD and MI

  13. Vascular Endothelial Mediators Include the following • Nitric oxide (NO) • Cycloxygenase (CxO) • Endothelin-1 (ET-1) • Endothelium Depolarisation Factor (EDF) • And many others - thus • It is the largest endocrine gland

  14. Nitric Oxide (NO) • Half-life of NO, is affected by its chemical reaction and inactivation by superoxide anion • NO is the most abundant free-radical in the body • It is the only biological molecule in high concentrations to out-compete superoxide dismutase for superoxide • NO has an anti-thrombogenic & anti-atherogenic role

  15. Protective actions of NO Endothelial NO has the following actions • Smooth muscle relaxation and vasodilatation • Essential for regulation of blood pressure • Reduces proliferation of vascular smooth muscle • Protects blood vessel intima from injurious consequences of platelet aggregation

  16. ED and NO ↓ NO deficiency in the vessel wall promotes • Inflammation • Oxidation of lipoproteins • Smooth muscle proliferation • Accumulation of lipid rich material • Platelet activation and thrombus formation Finally results in atherosclerosis.

  25. Comparison of Brachial and Coronary Flow-Mediated Vasodilation

  26. CVE’s over 7.7 Years in 147 Subjects with CAD According to Coronary Artery Responses to Ach, Cold Pressor, and FMD CVE’s

  27. CVE’s over 4 Years in 176 Subjects without CAD as per CVR and CA Diameters Changes with ACh

  28. Effect of ACh-Induced Forearm Vasodilation on CVE’s (%) in 225 Never Treated HTN cases

  31. Can Endothelial Dysfunction help in Diagnosis of CVD ??

  34. Can Endothelial Dysfunction predict prognosis of CVD ??

  35. Can Endothelial Dysfunction predict HTN and T2DM ??

  36. What is the Rx. for ED ??

  37. What is the Rx. for Endothelial Dysfunction? • Control of all the known CV risk factors • Main focus on the big six – DM, HTN, Lipids, Obesity, Smoking, Sedentary life style • Diet and physical activity are vital in Rx of ED • Statins are the first line treatment for ED • Glitazones have proven value to improve ED • Insulin and Rx. Insulin resistance improves ED
