BANFF

Brachial Artery ultrasound Normalization of Forearm Flow. A trial using high-resolution ultrasound to compare 4 antihypertensive agents’ effects on endothelial function—brachial artery flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD)—in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD).
 
Conclusion
CHD patients had significantly impaired FMD (6%, n = 80), compared to normal subjects (11%, n = 40); quinapril was associated with significant improvement in FMD; ACE inhibitors appear to differ in their ability to alter vascular endothelial function.

Logistics
Randomised, partial-block, cross-over, open label; 80 patients.
