Abstract

This study aimed to compare cutaneous microvascular function in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients including obstructive CAD (ObCAD) (n = 133) and non-obstructive CAD (NObCAD) (n = 129) with that of age and gender matched healthy controls (n = 83) using laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI) coupled with post-occlusive reactive hyperemia (PORH).
