Aortic Biomechanics by MRI : Relation with age, gender and traditional cardiovascular risk factors. A cross-sectional and longitudinal study : the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA)
Aims : To evaluate the change of aortic biomechanics over a 10year period time and define its relationship with demographic and clinical data.
Exams were perfom with a 10 years follow up.
ascending aorta area and aoPWV increased during this period whereas ascending aorta distensibility decreased.
