Objective: To observe the changes of endothelium-dependent dilation (EDD) of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) before and after Kanli Decoction treatment.Methods: Thirty-five CHF patients were treated with Kanli Decoction. We used color Doppler ultrasound to monitor the flow-mediated dilation (FMD), pulsatile index (PI), resistance index (RI), baseline blood flow (BF), ejection fraction (EF) before and after the treatment.Results: FMD after treatment ( 9.26±3.19) were obviously higher than that before the treatment (7.06±2.58 ) (P<0.05 ), but BF, PI and RI were not improved.Conclusion: Applying color Doppler ultrasound into observation on EDD of patients suffering from CHF and treated by the Kanli Decoction shows that the CHF could be treated by traditional Chinese medicine.

Key words: ultrasonography, color doppler, congestive heart failure, vasorelaxation, Kanli Decoction
