    Abstract

    Von Willebrand factor (vWF) has generally been regarded as a good predictor of vascular risk. However, no previous studies have examined its relationship with coronary calcification. The aim of this study was to determine whether vWF activity is higher in type 1 diabetic patients than controls; its relationship with cardiovascular risk factors; and to endothelial nitric oxide production and coronary artery calcification.
