Arterial stiffness is a well-established biomarker for cardiovascular risk, especially in the case of hypertension. The progressive stages of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) have also been associated with varying arterial stiffness. Pulse wave imaging (PWI) is a noninvasive, ultrasound imaging-based technique that uses the pulse wave-induced arterial(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the risk of cardiac events in patients with normal stress echocardiography (SE) who attained maximal age-predicted heart rate (APHR) compared with those who did not in the setting of both normal and abnormal SE. BACKGROUND SE is an important tool in the risk stratification and prognosis of patients with(More)
BACKGROUND The systolic variation of mitral regurgitation (MR) is a pitfall in its quantification. Current recommendations advocate using quantitative echocardiographic techniques that account for this systolic variation. While prior studies have qualitatively described patterns of systolic variation no study has quantified this variation. METHODS This(More)
