Compromise of normal function of endothelial cells leading to the inability of arteries and arterioles to dilate fully in response to an appropriate stimulus; strongly associated with hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes, smoking tobacco, etc; a key event in the development of atherosclerosis, predating clinically obvious vascular pathology by many years
