The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) is a new noninvasive index to evaluate arterial stiffness. We investigated whether CAVI can predict severity, extent, and burden of coronary artery disease by comparing results with cardiac computed tomographic angiography (CCTA).

Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) has been increasingly used as an index for arterial stiffness. However, the degree of longitudinal changes and factors affecting these changes in CAVI (ΔCAVI) are l...
No studies have reported the relationship between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and concurrent cerebral artery and coronary artery atherosclerosis simultaneously. We aimed at determining wh...
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is associated with poor mobility and fatigue, but the relationship between preclinical ankle-brachial index (ABI) and early markers of fatigue and functional decline ha...
The mechanism by which higher blood pressure (BP) variability causes cardiovascular events remains unclear. Experimental results indicate that alterations in vessel wall tension related to BP variabil...
Few studies have evaluated the association of sleep duration with subclinical atherosclerosis, and with heterogeneous findings. We evaluated the association of sleep duration with the presence of coro...
This study aimed to evaluate the role of the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) in evaluating arterial stiffness changes, the degree of atherosclerosis in patients with hypertension after ...
Chronic kidney disease(CKD) patients have high incidence of coronary artery problems event after renal transplantation. And remain a major cause of mortality. The major risk marker is arte...

Lack of perfusion in the EXTREMITIES resulting from atherosclerosis. It is characterized by INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION, and an ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX of 0.9 or less.
The active alterations of vascular wall structures, often leading to elevated VASCULAR RESISTANCE. It is associated with AGING; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; HYPERTENSION; PREGNANCY; PULMONARY HYPERTENSION; and STROKE, but is also a normal part of EMBRYOGENESIS.
Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
Obstruction of the flow in the SPLANCHNIC CIRCULATION by ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; THROMBOSIS; STENOSIS; TRAUMA; and compression or intrinsic pressure from adjacent tumors. Rare causes are drugs, intestinal parasites, and vascular immunoinflammatory diseases such as PERIARTERITIS NODOSA and THROMBOANGIITIS OBLITERANS.

An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese).

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
