Article title

The D. Celermajer method and its possibilities in endothelial function assessing

Abstract (resume)

Introduction. The problem of endothelial function evaluating is very relevant, but the most widely today used and recommended method of D. Celermajer does not satisfy the researchers, due to the complexity of the technique, low accuracy and the instability of the obtained results.

Objective. Revealing the reasons of low accuracy and instability of endothelial function evaluation results by D. Celermajer method.

Results of the research. The analysis of endothelial function evaluation by the D. Celermajer method was carried out. The main sources of the error in the estimation of the endothelial function was determined and the ways of their neutralization was outlined.

Conclusions. Increasing the accuracy of endothelial function evaluation by the D. Celermajer method is impossible, while preserving the ultrasound method of estimating the change in the diameter of the arterial vessel. To simplify the research methodology and increase the accuracy of the endothelial function assessment, one should proceed to the use of rheographic data.
