Listen as Editor in Chief William Stanley, senior author Kerrie Moreau (University of Colorado Denver), and leading women’s health expert Virginia Miller (Mayo Clinic) engage in a lively conversation about the latest clinical study by Moreau et al on the role of estrogen and uncoupled nitric oxide synthase in arterial stiffening in post-menopausal women. Can early intervention with estrogen combat accelerated vascular aging after menopause?
