Özet

Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) is the most common clinical precursor of open-angle glaucoma. Recent studies have shown that pseudoexfoliative material is widely distributed throughout the body, including blood vessels. The aim of our study was to evaluate endothelial function in the brachial artery of patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome.
