Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/180631
Description: Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of age on regional aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV). Background: aPWV is an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and increase ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/180604
Description: Background: Recent evidence suggests that central aortic blood pressure may be a better predictor of cardiovascular risk than peripheral blood pressure. The central SBP (cSBP) can be estimated from th ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116328
Description: Aortic stiffness, an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and all-cause mortality, can be estimated non-invasively by measuring carotid to femoral (aortic) pulse wave velocity (aPWV). The Vico ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116292
Description: 1. Ageing exerts a marked effect on the cardiovascular system and, in particular, the large arteries. Using a variety of techniques to assess arterial stiffness, many cross-sectional studies have demo ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116530
Description: Arterial stiffness is a key determinant of cardiovascular risk in hypertensive patients. [beta]-Blockers appear to be less effective than other drugs in improving outcome in hypertensive patients, and ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116745
Description: Arterial distensibility, assessed by the pulse-wave velocity (PWV), is an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk. We investigated whether natriuretic peptides, acting locally, modify conduit art ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116409
Description: Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate whether endothelin-1, acting locally, regulates arterial distensibility, assessed by measuring pulse-wave velocity in vivo. Background: Arterial st ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/116721
Description: Background—: Arterial stiffness is an important determinant of cardiovascular risk. Several lines of evidence support a role for the endothelium in regulating arterial stiffness by release of vasoacti ... More
