In recent years, great emphasis has been placed on the role of arterial stiffness in the development of cardiovascular diseases. Indeed, the assessment of arterial stiffness is increasingly used in… Expand
Endothelial function in chronic congestive heart failure.
There is evidence that the endothelium plays an important role in the control of human vascular tone by releasing endothelium-derived nitric oxide. The hypothesis that an impairment of this mechanism… Expand

In vivo, endothelial cells (ECs) are subjected to a complex mechanical environment composed of shear stress, pressure, and circumferential stretch. The aim of this study was to subject bovine aortic… Expand
The CoLaus study: a population-based study to investigate the epidemiology and genetic determinants of cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic syndrome
BackgroundCardiovascular diseases and their associated risk factors remain the main cause of mortality in western societies. In order to assess the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs)… Expand
Synchronous and baroceptor-sensitive oscillations in skin microcirculation: evidence for central autonomic control.

OBJECTIVES The present study aims to investigate whether laser Doppler flowmetry can be used to monitor improvements in vascular function during statin therapy. BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction… Expand
Mental Stress Induces Prolonged Endothelial Dysfunction via Endothelin-A Receptors
Background—Mental stress is a risk factor for atherosclerosis and may precipitate myocardial ischemia and infarction. Because endothelial dysfunction is an early manifestation of atherosclerosis, we… Expand
