Systemic sclerosis (SSc) induces pronounced peripheral vascular dysfunction characterized by blunted peripheral vasoreactivity and endothelial dysfunction.

 

Compared to healthy controls, SSc patients had significantly smaller brachial artery diameter and blunted peripheral vascular reactivity and endothelial function. PubMed, Clin Rheumatol, 12/16/2014. (Also see: Vascular Involvement in Systemic Scleroderma)
