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 ...
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

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 FisioterapiaCâmpus 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 ...
Response to Cold Pressor Test Predicts Long-Term Changes in Pulse Wave Velocity in Men
(Oxford Univ PressOxfordInglaterra, 2014)
Aortic length measurements for pulse wave velocity calculation: manual 2D vs automated 3D centreline extraction
Abstract Background Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a biomarker for the intrinsic stiffness of the aortic wall, and has been shown to be predictive for cardiovascular events. ...
Association between the C242T polymorphism in the p22phox gene with arterial stiffness in the Brazilian population
(Amer Physiological SocBethesda, 2012)
Arterial Stiffness in a Rural Population of Argentina: Pilot Study
Introduction: Aortic stiffness evaluated through pulse wave velocity (PWV) measurement is nowadays accepted as a reliable parameter to estimate cardiovascular risk. However the data about arterial stiffness in South America ...
High Intensity Interval- vs Resistance or Combined- Training for Improving Cardiometabolic Health in Overweight Adults (Cardiometabolic HIIT-RT Study): Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial
Background: Although evidence shows the positive health effects of physical activity, most of the adult population in Colombia are sedentary. It is, therefore, important to implement strategies that generate changes in ...
