Arterial stiffness and mitral regurgitation in arterial hypertension: An intriguing pathophysiological link.

We examined the relative impact of arterial stiffness on the presence and/or severity of chronic mitral regurgitation (MR) in hypertensive patients.

Increased systemic arterial stiffness in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a complication of venous thromboembolism (VTE) resulting from non-dissolving thromboembolic in the pulmonary arteries. Previous observations in...

Association of Serum Uric Acid with Arterial Stiffness in Peritoneal Dialysis Patients.

Serum uric acid (SUA) has been proposed as a mediator associated with increased cardiovascular risk and arterial stiffness. However, evidence on the association between SUA and arterial stiffness in p...

Arterial Stiffness and Its Relationship to Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Children and Young Adults with a Fontan Circulation.

There are no previous studies on arterial stiffness and its associations with cardiorespiratory fitness in young Fontan patients. Therefore, we examined the arterial stiffness and its relationship to ...

Extracellular fluid volume expansion, arterial stiffness and uncontrolled hypertension in patients with chronic kidney disease.

Hypertension is prevalent in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is related to extracellular fluid volume (ECFV) expansion. Arterial stiffening is another implication of CKD that can be cau...

Vitamin K2 Supplementation and Arterial Stiffness in the Renal Transplant Population

This study is a single arm, single center clinical trial that aims to evaluate the effect of 8 weeks of vitamin K2 replacement (360 mcg/day) on the progression of arterial stiffness in sta...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.

The relative amounts of various components in the body, such as percentage of body fat.

A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.

Blocking of a blood vessel by CHOLESTEROL-rich atheromatous deposits, generally occurring in the flow from a large artery to small arterial branches. It is also called arterial-arterial embolization or atheroembolism which may be spontaneous or iatrogenic. Patients with spontaneous atheroembolism often have painful, cyanotic digits of acute onset.
