Impact of arterial cross-clamping during vascular surgery on arterial stiffness measured by the augmentation index and fractal dimension of arterial pressure


Arterial cross-clamping is a common strategy used in vascular surgery and its duration is an independent predictor of surgical outcomes. The impact of arterial cross-clamping on the viscoelastic properties of the arterial system and its underlying mechanisms still remain unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of arterial cross-clamping on… (More)
