Our study aims to provide basic scientific data on the importance of obesity management in middle-aged Korean women by analyzing its effects on blood pressure and arterial stiffness. In addition, we examined the correlations of these two parameters.The study participants were 40 middle-aged female volunteers, who were classified into obesity group (n = 20) and normal weight group (n = 20). Statistical analysis was performed using independent t-test and the Pearson correlation coefficient was use...

Stroke is the second leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Early intervention is of great importance in reducing disease burden. Since the conventional risk factors cannot fully account for the pathogenesis of stroke, it is extremely important to detect useful biomarkers of the vascular disorder for appropriate intervention. Arterial stiffness, a newly recognised reliable feature of arterial structure and function, is demonstrated to be associated with stroke onset and serve as an ...

Abstract Background and aims Ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) is associated with reduced risk of cardiac and cerebral events. Arterial stiffness plays an important role in the progress of cardiac and cerebral events, but it is unclear whether ideal CVH, in particular, cumulative exposure to ideal CVH (cumCVH), is associated with reduced risk of arterial stiffness. We examined the association between cumCVH and arterial stiffness using data from the Kailuan Study. Methods The study cohort consis...

Hypertension and increased vascular stiffness are viewed as inevitable parts of aging. To elucidate whether the age-related decrease in vascular function is avoidable, we assessed the prevalence, correlates, and prognosis of healthy vascular aging (HVA) in 3196 Framingham Study participants aged ≥50 years. We defined HVA as absence of hypertension and pulse wave velocity P

The primary aim of the present study was to identify the hemodynamic correlates of both steady and pulsatile blood pressure (BP) in community-dwelling older adults. In 3762 adults aged 70 to 89 years, significant hemodynamic determinants of both brachial and carotid systolic BP included arterial stiffness as measured by aortic pulse wave velocity, stroke volume (via echocardiography), arterial wave reflection, left ventricular ejection time, and upstroke time. The strongest influence was exerted...

Though smoking is strongly associated with peripheral vascular disease and arteriosclerosis, smoking's association with arterial stiffness has been inconsistent and mostly limited to a single arterial segment. We examined the relationship between smoking behaviors with arterial stiffness in multiple arterial segments among community dwelling older adults.The cross-sectional relationship between smoking behavior with carotid-femoral (cfPWV) and femoral-ankle pulse wave velocity (faPWV) was examin...

Abstract To determine whether prediabetes and diabetes in older adults are associated with arterial stiffness measured in central and peripheral arteries and to examine characteristics that modify these associations. Cohort members attending the 5th exam (2011-2013) of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study had pulse wave velocity (PWV) measures performed at the carotid-femoral (cfPWV), brachial-ankle (baPWV), and femoral-ankle (faPWV) segments. Fasting glucose ≥126mg/dl, glycated ...
