OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine whether aortic size and compliance are altered by an exogenously induced rise in estrogen. STUDY DESIGN Magnetic resonance imaging was used to determine the aortic cross-sectional area/aortic pressure relationship in nine premenopausal women before and after menotropin therapy. Simultaneous electrocardiograms, carotid pulse tracings, phonocardiograms, and brachial artery pressures were obtained before each magnetic resonance imaging acquisition… Expand
