Decreased flow-mediated dilatation with increased arterial stiffness and thickness as early signs of atherosclerosis in polymyositis (PM) and dermatomyositis (DM) patients.

 

Flow-mediated dilatation of the brachial artery, arterial stiffness, and carotid artery thickness measurements could be beneficial for predicting the cardiovascular diseases risk in myositis patients. PubMed, Clin Rheumatol, 2014 Mar 12. (Also see: Dermatomyositis and Polymyositis)
