The incremental elastic modulus (Einc), which is the slope of the relationship between stress and strain of arteries, is a marker of vascular wall material stiffness. Isobaric Einc is reduced at the site of the radial artery in patients with essential hypertension and increased at the site of the common carotid artery in subjects with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Whether the changes in Einc are influenced by the topography of the vessels, the composition of the arterial wall, and/or by the… CONTINUE READING
