Abstract Youth with type 1 diabetes (T1D) carry greater cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk than their nondiabetic peers. Low serum uromodulin (SUMOD) associates with increased CVD mortality in adults. We found that T1D youth have low SUMOD. Lower SUMOD correlated with aortic stiffness, suggesting its potential as a CVD biomarker in T1D.
Abstract Objective Elastic properties of the thoracic aorta are responsible for buffering systemic afterload, and may be particularly important in patients with Fontan circulation, in whom heart failure is a major source of attrition. The purpose of this study was to characterize regional stiffness in the ascending and descending aorta in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and single left ventricle morphology after Fontan operation by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, and to assess ...
