Estudio piloto de la relación entre el aumento de la velocidad de onda del pulso en arteria carótida común medida por resonancia magnética y los factores de riesgo vasculares clásicos en sujetos con sospecha de lesión cerebrovascular isquémica

Blasco Solà, Gerard
Arterial stiffness assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) measurement is now well accepted as an independent predictor of vascular mortality and morbidity. However, the value of cfPWV has been considered to be limited for risk classification in patients with several vascular risk factors. Magnetic resonance (MR) allows measurement of PWV between two points, though to date mainly used to study the aorta. To assess the common carotid artery pulse wave velocity by magnetic resonance, determine their association with classical vascular risk factors and ischemic brain injury burden in patients with suspected ischemic cerebrovascular disease ​
