Prolonged sitting has been shown to promote endothelial dysfunction in the lower legs. Further, it has been reported that simple sitting-interruption strategies, including calf raises, prevent leg endothelial function. However, it is unclear whether prolonged sitting affects central cardiovascular health, or whether simple sitting interruption strategies prevent impaired central cardiovascular health.

Aims Heart failure (HF) is associated with increased large conduit artery stiffness and afterload resulting in stiffening of the coronary arteries. Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) and advanced glyc...
What is the central question of this study? We studied the impact of acute aerobic or aerobic + resistance (concurrent) exercise on the regulation of multivesicular body formation in human skeletal mu...
High-intensity resistance exercise (RE) increases aortic stiffness and decreases index of myocardial oxygen supply/demand balance (Buckberg index, BI); there is a correlation between the changes in th...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the differences in salivary proteome at rest and in response to an acute exercise in men and women. For this, unstimulated whole saliva samples in rest and...
Acute illness requiring hospitalization frequently is a sentinel event leading to long-term disability in older people. Prolonged bed rest increases the risk of developing cognitive impairment and dem...
Hardening of the blood vessels, called arterial stiffness, is a risk factor for future heart disease and its causes are unclear. The proposed study will 1) randomly assign adolescents at h...
The present study will investigate the effect of artificially stiffening the aorta by means of an aortic stent on central aortic haemodynamics (CAH). This study will determine whether aort...
Aortic valve sparing operations are applied in patients with a non-calcified tricuspid or bicuspid aortic valve associated with a root aneurysm, in order to preserve the valve, and avoid n...
One hundred patients with moderate to severe asymptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) will be asked to exercise on a treadmill. NT-pro-BNP levels will be drawn before and after exercise. Changes ...
Aortic stenosis is a major cause of morbidity around the world. Progressive aortic stenosis leads to cardiac hypertrophy as a compensatory response. A maladaptive response may lead to hear...
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Small masses of chromaffin cells found near the SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA along the ABDOMINAL AORTA, beginning cranial to the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) or renal arteries and extending to the level of the aortic bifurcation or just beyond. They are also called the organs of Zuckerkandl and sometimes called aortic bodies (not to be confused with AORTIC BODIES in the THORAX). The para-aortic bodies are the dominant source of CATECHOLAMINES in the FETUS and normally regress after BIRTH.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
