Effect of Periodontal Therapy on Arterial Structure and Function Among Aboriginal Australians: A Randomized, Controlled Trial
Observational studies and nonrandomized trials support an association between periodontal disease and atherosclerotic vascular disease. Both diseases occur frequently in Aboriginal Australians. WeExpand

Central blood pressure in children and adolescents: non-invasive development and testing of novel transfer functions
Central blood pressure can be estimated from peripheral pulses in adults using generalised transfer functions (TF). We sought to create and test age-specific non-invasively developed TFs in children,Expand

Obesity, arterial function and arterial structure – a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Obesity is an established risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms by which obesity affects cardiovascular risk have not been fully elucidated. This paper reports a comprehensiveExpand

Carotid extramedial thickness is associated with local arterial stiffness in children
Objectives: Experimental evidence suggests that structural changes to the arterial adventitia may be a key vascular determinant of early arterial stiffening, although this has not been directlyExpand

Early outcomes using dedicated venous stents in the upper limb of patients with venous thoracic outlet syndrome: A single centre experience
Surgical management of Venous Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (vTOS) is based upon resection of the first rib. The optimal method to treat any residual venous scarring however remains unclear. The purposeExpand

Predicting non‐sentinel lymph node metastasis in Australian breast cancer patients: are the nomograms still useful in the post‐Z0011 era?
Axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) can be avoided in breast cancer patients with low‐volume disease in the sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) according to Z0011 trial. We believe that nomograms developedExpand

Validation of a cuff-based device for measuring carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity in children and adolescents
Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity is associated with arterial stiffness in major elastic arteries, and predicts future cardiovascular events. However, little is known about carotid-femoral pulseExpand
