The process of population aging that is occurring in developed societies represents a major challenge for the health system. The aim of this study is to analyze factors that have an influence on early vascular aging (EVA), estimated by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV) and Cardio Ankle Vascular Index (CAVI), and to determine differences by gender in a Chinese population.

The purpose of this study is to determine if the contrast agent is effective and safe in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of vascular diseases in patients of Chinese origin.
This is an open label, Phase 1/2 study of oral ARQ 092 administered to patients at least 6 years of age with overgrowth diseases and vascular anomalies with genetic alterations of the PI3K...
ARQ 092 is being investigated for patients with overgrowth diseases and/or vascular anomalies with genetic alterations of the PI3K/AKT pathway and may be available for patients who are ine...
The purpose of this observational epidemiological study is to investigate the management and the complications associated with Non Traumatic Neuro-Vascular Diseases. Data will be analysed ...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of an internet based vascular risk factor program on top of usual care compared to usual care alone for treatm...
Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) was supposed to be an independent predictor for vascular-related events. Biomarkers such as homocysteine (Hcy), N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP),...
Rare Vascular Diseases (RVD) encompass different types of vessel involvement. Some cause a dilation, others a weakening or tortuosity of the arterial wall, others an obstruction or excessive calcifica...
The author evaluates a role of endothelium in the pathogenesis of cerebral vascular diseases (CVD) and considers the concept about endothelium as prevention and treatment of pathological processes lea...

Questions and answers on diagnosis and management of patients with Peripheral Arterial Diseases: a companion document of the 2017 ESC Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases, in collaboration with the European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS): Endorsed by: the European Stroke Organisation (ESO)The Task Force for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arteri
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. (From Juergens et al., Peripheral Vascular Diseases, 5th ed, pp295-6)
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.
Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS in the cardiac or peripheral circulation. They include diseases of ARTERIES; VEINS; and rest of the vasculature system in the body.
Deposition of calcium into the blood vessel structures. Excessive calcification of the vessels are associated with ATHEROSCLEROTIC PLAQUES formation particularly after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION (see MONCKEBERG MEDIAL CALCIFIC SCLEROSIS) and chronic kidney diseases which in turn increase VASCULAR STIFFNESS.
Increased VASCULAR RESISTANCE in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION, usually secondary to HEART DISEASES or LUNG DISEASES.
