The relevance of homocysteine to brachial flow-mediated vasodilatation and carotid and femoral intima-media thickness was investigated in 192 patients with hypercholesterolemia. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and homocysteine levels predicted brachial flow-mediated vasodilatation, internal carotid mean intima-media thickness, and intima-media thickening at all femoral sites. Homocysteine levels seem to be an additional factor in the initial atherosclerotic damage of patients with hypercholesterolemia.
