INTRODUCTION Left ventricular (LV) developed pressure (dP/dt) is a classical index of myocardial contractility related to prognosis during heart failure. We sought to assess the reproducibility and feasibility of use of the maximal first derivative of the radial pulse, Rad dP/dt, as a peripheral criterion of ventricular contractility in patients with heart(More)
Increased common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) and carotid and/or iliofemoral (C/IF) plaque are frequent in subjects treated for hypertension, but their association with pulse pressure (PP) has rarely been studied. Using ultrasound techniques, CCA-IMT and C/IF plaques were studied in 323 hypertensive subjects, who were classified into four(More)
Aortic dissection is a rare but severe disease. Numerous risk factors have been reported, all leading to an alteration of arterial structures, particularly extracellular matrix. Aortic dissection is a complication of arterial hypertension, whatever its origin. Primary aldosteronism, frequent cause of secondary arterial hypertension, is associated with(More)
