Central-to-peripheral arterial stiffness gradient in hemodialyzed patients depends on the location of the upper-limb vascular access
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2018-11)
Background: Pulse wave velocity ratio (PWV-ratio), a measure of central-to-peripheral arterial stiffness gradient, is calculated as a quotient between carotid-femoral and carotid-radial PWV (cf-PWV/cr-PWV). This new index ...
Flow-mediated Dilation: An Evolving Method
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTDCLARE, 2015)
Immune Activation Caused By Vascular Oxidation Promotes Fibrosis And Hypertension
(AMER SOC CLINICAL INVESTIGATION INCANN ARBOR, 2016)
Forward and backward aortic components and reflection indexes in children and adolescents: Determinants and role in high pressure states
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2018-04)
Background: High blood pressure states (HBP) would differ in wave components and reflections indexes, which could associate clinical and prognostic implications. The study aims: 1) to characterize the association of aortic ...
No correlation and low agreement of imaging and inflammatory atherosclerosis` markers in familial hypercholesterolemia
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTD, 2008)
Our purpose was to study the determinants of coronary and carotid subclinical atherosclerosis, aortic stiffness and their relation with inflammatory biomarkers in familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) subjects. Furthermore, ...
Relationship between serum uric acid and internal carotid resistive index in hypertensive women: a cross-sectional study
(Biomed Central LtdLondon, 2012)
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 ...
Association between the C242T polymorphism in the p22phox gene with arterial stiffness in the Brazilian population
(Amer Physiological SocBethesda, 2012)
Analysis of aortic pressure fields from 4D flow MRI in healthy volunteers: Associations with age and left ventricular remodeling
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2019-02)
Background: Aging-related arterial stiffness is associated with substantial changes in global and local arterial pressures. The subsequent early return of reflected pressure waves leads to an elevated left ventricular (LV) ...
Differential effects of dexamethasone on arterial stiffness, myocardial remodeling and blood pressure between normotensive and spontaneously hypertensive rats
Dexamethasone (DEX)-induced hypertension is observed in normotensive rats, but little is known about the effects of DEX on spontaneously hypertensive animals (SHR). This study aimed to evaluate the effects of DEX on ...
