Arterial stiffness is an age-related disorder. In the medial layer of arteries, mechanical fracture due to fatigue failure for the pulsatile wall strain causes medial degeneration vascular remodeling. The alteration of extracellular matrix composition and arterial geometry result in structural arterial stiffness. Calcium deposition and other factors such as advanced glycation end product Author: Takayuki Namba, Nobuyuki Masaki, Bonpei Takase, Takeshi Adachi. Arterial stiffness is closely associated with hypertension and increasingly recognized as an independent predictor of total and CV morbidity and mortality [34–39].

In this book, the first to specifically focus on arterial stiffness in clinical practice, Prof. Roland Asmar has done a splendid job in reviewing older concepts and blending these with the new work that he and his colleagues have been conducting over the past two decades, and contributions from around the globe.
6 Arterial stiffness independently predicts all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in patients with comorbidities, in the elderly, and in apparently healthy adults. 7 Basal limb blood flow. Arterial stiffness in children with essential hypertension and white coat hypertension was impaired compared with healthy children. This finding has made us think that white coat hypertension is not an innocent clinical situation.

Arterial stiffness parameters (mostly pulse wave velocity) initially proved predictive ability for cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in three high-risk patient populations: end-stage renal disease, hypertension, and the elderly.
Increased arterial stiffness is closely linked to increased risk of hypertension and other diseases, such as chronic kidney disease and stroke. In this brief review, I will discuss recent progress in relating arterial stiffness research to by: 8.
Given that studies have confirmed the effect of hemodynamic parameters on PWV, this equation provides a clearer demonstration of the role played by the arterial elastic modulus, increased aortic stiffness, elasticity, and pulsatility in hypertension, particularly when the ratio of wall thickness to arterial diameter, and the blood density are.
The vast majority of the research on arterial stiffness has been concerned with the conduit arteries, wherein the best understood change is the increased stiffness that occurs with aging, the main effect of which is to increase the stiffness of the elastic conduit arteries (such as the carotid), but not the muscular arteries (such as the radial Cited by: The most important task of the European Society of Hypertension is to improve blood pressure treatment and increase blood pressure control, thus decreasing cardiovascular risk, premature cardiovascular and renal morbidity and mortality, with in addition a reduction of health-care costs.
Therefore, arterial stiffness predicts an increase in systolic blood pressure and incident hypertension. 13 These observations indicate a close relationship between aortic stiffening and the development of hypertension in human by:.

Change Location EU.Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated.
High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms. Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision Specialty: Cardiology.Arterial stiffness is an important determinant of pulse pressure, and of left ventricular load and coronary perfusion pressure.
Assessments of stiffness Precise quantification is elusive, since stiffness is different in different arteries and even in the same artery at different pressures.
