Abstract

Background: Brachial endothelial function has been associated with coronary slow flow (CSF). Increasing blood flow to brachial artery provokes endothelium to release nitric oxide (NO) with subsequent vasodilatation. Besides its beta 1-blocker activity, nebivolol causes vasodilatation by increasing endothelial NO release.
