The ageing population : in-vivo study on the effect of age on cardiovascular physiology

Last updated on 23-8-2019 by Anonymous (niet gecontroleerd)





Background: Arterial stiffness has previously been shown to be a key indicator for the risk on developing cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) like a myocardial infarction or a stroke. Being able to measure and evaluate arterial stiffness has thus become increasingly important and could lead to promising techniques in early detection of CVDs and identification of high-risk patients. Goal: An existing relation between arterial stiffness and biological age has been established before. However, most studies used cross-sectional cohort data to show this link with age, which is, in essence, a longi…
