BACKGROUND: Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) is an indirect index of arterial stiffness and an independent cardiovascular risk factor. Consistency of PWV assessment over time is thus an essential feature for its clinical application. However, studies providing a comparative estimate of the reproducibility of PWV across different noninvasive devices are lacking, especially in the elderly and in individuals at high cardiovascular risk. METHODS: Aimed at filling this gap, short-term repeatability o...

A number of different techniques and methodologies have been applied to quantify stiffness of arteries. Because measures of arterial stiffness differ in regards to measurement locations as well as properties, it is not clear how well these measures that are supposed to reflect the same arterial wall properties are related.Interrelationships between different measures of arterial stiffness were evaluated in 50 apparently healthy subjects varying in age.Significant relations ranging from mild to s...

Aims Estimated central systolic blood pressure (cSBP) and amplification (Brachial SBP-cSBP) are non-invasive measures potentially prognostic of cardiovascular (CV) disease. No worldwide, multiple-device reference values are available. We aimed to establish reference values for a worldwide general population standardizing between the different available methods of measurement. How these values were significantly altered by cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs) was then investigated. Methods and res...

Arteriograph (TensioMed Budapest Hungary, Ltd) was used in order to obtain the PWVa. An upper arm cuff was applied to the patient and after a first simple BP measurement, the cuff was over-inflated with 35- 40 mm Hg beyond the systolic BP. During systole, the blood volume having been ejected into the aorta generates pulse wave (early systolic peak). This pulse wave runs down and reflects from the bifurcation of aorta, creating a second wave (late systolic peak). Both early and late systolic peak...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension is a major risk factor for a wide range of cardiovascular diseases and is typically identified by measuring blood pressure (BP) at the brachial artery. Although such a measurement may accurately determine diastolic BP, systolic BP is not reflected accurately. Current noninvasive techniques for assessing central aortic BP require additional recording of an arterial pressure wave using a high-fidelity applanation tonometer. Within one measurement cycle, the Mobil-O-Graph B...

Stiffness of elastic arteries like the aorta predicts cardiovascular risk. By directly reflecting arterial stiffness, having the best predictive value for cardiovascular outcome and the ease of its measurement, carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity is now considered the gold standard for arterial stiffness assessment in daily practice. Many different measurement procedures have been proposed. Therefore, standardization of its measurement is urgently needed, particularly regarding the distance meas...

The prognostic value of central systolic blood pressure has been established recently. At present, its noninvasive assessment is limited by the need of dedicated equipment and trained operators. Moreover, ambulatory and home blood pressure monitoring of central pressures are not feasible. An algorithm enabling conventional automated oscillometric blood pressure monitors to assess central systolic pressure could be of value. We compared central systolic pressure, calculated with a transfer-functi...

Background The importance of measuring aortic pulse wave velocity (PWVao), aortic augmentation index (Aix) and central systolic blood pressure (SBPao) has been shown under different clinical conditions; however, information on these parameters is hard to obtain. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of a new, easily applicable oscillometric device (Arteriograph), determining these parameters simultaneously, against invasive measurements. Methods Aortic Aix, SBPao and PWVao were meas...

Objective Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce albuminuria and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aimed to assess the effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on albuminuria, blood pressure, pulse wave velocity, and inflammatory markers in patients with CKD. Methods Patients with CKD and a urine albumin excretion of at least 30 mg/g creatinine were supplemented for 3 months with 3,666 mg/day of docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acids or a corn oil sup...

Abstract Introduction Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is an indicator of arterial stiffness and one of the prognostic tools in clinical practice. We compared the finger photo pulse plethysmography (PPG) module with the Mobil-O-Graph for assessment of PWV. Material and methods 80 healthy subjects and patients have participated in this study, among them, 42 were males, and 38 were females. Recording for the subjects was executed between 9, and 11 am, after a light breakfast. Lead – II ECG along with PPG...

Assessment of central blood pressure (BP), pulse wave velocity (PWV), and augmentation index (AIx) measurements may improve cardiovascular risk stratification. This study aimed to establish reference office values for central BP, PWV, and AIx by means of a Mobil-O-Graph PWA monitor and to evaluate the impact of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs) on these measurements. We cross-sectionally evaluated clinical characteristics, central BP, PWV, AIx, and peripheral BP measurements among 867 apparent...

Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a valid, clinically feasible marker of arterial stiffening, and a strong predictor of outcomes. The present study aimed to compare aortic elastic properties in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), with or without coronary artery disease (CAD), as well as healthy individuals. A total of 130 patients with AAA, eligible for interventional repair, and 30 healthy individuals, comprising the control group (HC), were enrolled. Presence of CAD was identified by co...

: Wave reflection at central arteries consists of a major component of left ventricular afterload. Central augmentation index (AIx) is the most widely used surrogate of wave reflection. Recent technological developments now provide the ability to obtain, non-invasively, aortic, or carotid pressure waves and measure AIx based on various algorithms of pulse wave analysis. The aim of this study was to compare AIx measurements performed by the Arteriograph, Complior, and Mobil-O-Graph apparatuses. R...

AbstractObjective: Advanced technology allows non-invasive monitoring of the 24-h brachial and central hemodynamics simultaneously. However, related reproducibility data was limited in White patients. We therefore explored if the novel measurements would be reproducible in Chinese.Methods: From February 2017 to January 2018, 152 untreated patients who were suspected of hypertension and referred for ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring were recruited. Ambulatory BP monitoring was repeated wi...
