From Endothelial Dysfunction to Acute Ischemic Syndrome Atherosclerosis has been considered a disease of ‘four concepts’. In a substudy of 5,209 patients from the Framingham Study followed for 10 years, it was seen that those patients with peripheral vascular disease had more probabilities of having an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or a stroke, while those who had had an AMI had more possibilities of having a stroke or peripheral vascular disease. Also those who had suffered a stroke had more chances of having an AMI or peripheral vascular disease.

Besides, it has been noticed that the presence of diabetes abolishes differences in mortality between genders by enhancing it in women, though it is not possible to rule out an impaired glycemic control with greater levels of glycosylated hemoglobin A1c or a diminished compliance with treatment, conditions frequently seen in women [134]. Studies in animal models have always shown that endothelial dysfunction is present in diabetic individuals though in humans dissimilar responses have been observed [135].
