Abstract

Objective: Hypertension and hypercholesterolemia elicit inflammatory and thrombogenic responses in the microvasculature. However, little is known about whether and how risk factor combinations alter microvascular function. We examined how the actions of HTN + HCh on the microvasculature differ from the responses elicited by either risk factor alone.
