Immediate effects of submaximal effort on pulse wave velocity in patients with Marfan syndrome
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2010-04-01)
Marfan syndrome (MS) is a dominant autosomal disease caused by mutations in chromosome 15, the locus controlling fibrillin 1 synthesis, and may exhibit skeletal, ocular, cardiovascular, and other manifestations. Pulse wave ...
Comparison of different methods for the estimation of aortic pulse wave velocity from 4D flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance
(BioMed Central, 2019-12)
Background: Arterial pulse wave velocity (PWV) is associated with increased mortality in aging and disease. Several studies have shown the accuracy of applanation tonometry carotid-femoral PWV (Cf-PWV) and the relevance ...
Reference intervals of aortic pulse wave velocity assessed with an oscillometric device in healthy children and adolescents from Argentina
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-02)
Age-related reference intervals (RIs) of aortic pulse wave velocity (Ao-PWV) obtained from a large healthy population are lacking in South America. The aims of this study were to determine Ao-PWV RIs in a cohort of healthy ...
Arterial stiffness in haemodialyzed patients: Findings and controversies
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2018-04)
Vascular research in end-stage renal diseases is an interesting field in which the characterization of arterial stiffness proved to be valuable to predict morbidity and mortality. Particularly, patients on renal replacement ...
Comprehensive assessment of local and regional aortic stiffness in patients with tricuspid or bicuspid aortic valve aortopathy using magnetic resonance imaging
(Elsevier Ireland, 2020-11)
Background: We aimed to provide a comprehensive aortic stiffness description using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with ascending thoracic aorta aneurysm and tricuspid (TAV-ATAA) or bicuspid (BAV) aortic valve. ...
Aortic distensibility measured by pulse-wave velocity is not modified in patients with Chagas' disease
Abstract Background Experimental studies demonstrate that infection with trypanosoma cruzi causes vasculitis. The inflammatory ...
Fatores de risco para rigidez aórtica e sua progressão em pessoas vivendo com HIV/AIDS no estado de Pernambuco
(Universidade Federal de PernambucoUFPEBrasilPrograma de Pos Graduacao em Medicina Tropical, 2016)
The effects of age on pulse wave velocity in untreated hypertension
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2018-02)
Increased arterial stiffness is an important determinant of cardiovascular risk, able to predict morbidity and mortality, and closely associated with ageing and blood pressure. The aims of this study were: (1) To determine ...
Medidas hemodinâmicas aórticas e rigidez arterial em pacientes com DPOC e associação com perfil clínico e funcional na exacerbação aguda e no período de recuperação
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosUFSCarPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Fisioterapia - PPGFtCâmpus São Carlos, 2018-02-02)
Background: Acute exacerbation of COPD negatively affects the disease, impairs lung function, functional capacity and health status and increases the risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and the ...
