Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) seem to be involved in aging as well as in the development of cardiovascular diseases. During aging, AGEs accumulate in extracellular matrix proteins like collagen and contribute to vessel stiffness. Whether non-invasive measurement of AGE accumulation in the skin may reflect vessel function and vessel protein(More)
Arterial stiffness is a well-established risk factor for cardiovascular disease and mortality. Carotid to femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) as a measure of arterial stiffness was obtained in 155 (47 women; 67.2±9.1 years, range 44-87 years) patients with detected coronary artery disease (CAD) scheduled for coronary artery bypass surgery. The authors set(More)
