Insulin resistance and exercise tolerance in heart failure patients: linkage to coronary flow reserve and peripheral vascular function
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Insulin resistance has been linked to exercise intolerance in heart failure patients. The aim of this study was to assess the potential role of coronary flow reserve (CFR), endothelial function and arterial stiffness in explaining this linkage.
