Reference Values of Pulse Wave Velocity in South America: A Call to Action
(ScidMed Central, 2015-04)
The measurement of pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a wellknown technique currently considered the gold standard of arterial stiffness quantification due to its simplicity, accuracy, reproducibility, and predictive valueHowever, ...
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 ...
Reference Values of Pulse Wave Velocity in Healthy People from an Urban and Rural Argentinean Population
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014-08)
In medical practice the reference values of arterial stiffness came from multicenter registries obtained in Asia, USA, Australia and Europe. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is the gold standard method for arterial stiffness ...
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 ...
