Effect of physical activity on the distensibility of the aortic wall in healthy males.


To study the effect of physical activity level on the distensibility of the human aortic wall, aortic pulse wave velocity (APWV) was estimated in 139 healthy male subjects (19-67 years) and was related to the energy expenditure by habitual physical exercise (physical activity index: PAI), which was evaluated by a 7-day total activity recall. The subjects… (More)
