This study investigated the impact of body composition in the arterial stiffness of children with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

We examined the relative impact of arterial stiffness on the presence and/or severity of chronic mitral regurgitation (MR) in hypertensive patients.
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a complication of venous thromboembolism (VTE) resulting from non-dissolving thromboembolic in the pulmonary arteries. Previous observations in...
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...
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 ...
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...
Arterial dysfunction contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which is currently afflicting millions of individuals. The use of the amino acid L-citrulline has been ...
This is an observational case-control study which objective is to analyse differences in intestinal microbiota between patients with and without arterial stiffness, measured by pulse wave ...
Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) have a poor prognosis primarily due to cardiovascular disease. The cardiovascular risk can be assessed by measurements of arterial stiffness. A d...
Arterial hypotension during induction of general anesthesia is a risk factor for developing postoperative cardiovascular complications. After induction of general anesthesia patients have ...
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...
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.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
