    Abstract  This examination of brachial artery (BA) differential characteristic impedance, ΔZ c, illustrates that changes in Z c can occur from changes in either BA wall stiffness (Young’s modulus, E) and/or its diameter, D. Furthermore, we assessed how changes in both E and D...

    While adjusting flow-mediated dilation (FMD), a measure of vascular function, for shear rate may be important when evaluating endothelial-dependent vasodilation, the relationship of FMD with shear rate in study populations with cardiovascular risk factors is unclear. We aimed to investigate the...
