Coronary flow velocity reserve (CFR) and aortic distensibility are altered both in diabetes and in the presence of aortic atherosclerosis (AA). Transoesophageal echocardiography has been demonstrated to be a suitable method for simultaneous evaluation of these functional parameters. In the present study no significant difference could be observed in CFR and aortic distensibility in diabetic patients compared to non-diabetic subjects with or without AA.
