Changes in segmental pulse wave velocity of the thoracic aorta with age and left ventricular remodelling. An MRI 4D flow study
Aims : To compare PWVs obtained by 2D and 4D PC, through their relationships with carotid-femoral PWV, age and left ventricular remodelling.
4D-PWVs were highly correlated with ageing, 2D PWV and with the conventional cf-PWV.
The strong association between the ascending aorta stiffness and the left ventricular remodelling in healthy volunteers is encouraging to better estimate left ventricular afterload.
