AIM Central pulse pressure and measures of arterial stiffness (augmentation index (AIx) and aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV)) predict morbidity and mortality in patients with stage 2-4 chronic kidney(More)
BACKGROUND Central blood pressure (BP) and markers of wave reflection (augmentation index; AIx) measured by radial tonometry have prognostic value independent from brachial BP. The measurement of the(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodialysis patients show reduced physical function and greater risk of increased arterial stiffness because of hypertension, metabolic disturbances, and vascular calcification. Exercise(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic relevance of a hypertensive response to exercise (HRE) is ill-defined in individuals undergoing exercise stress testing. The study described here was intended to provide a(More)
