The assessment of aortic annular size is critical, and inappropriate sizing is thought to be a main reason of paravalvular aortic regurgitation. Multidetector computed tomograph is associated with the risk of contrast nephropathy. For optimal evaluation of the complex structure of the aortic annulus, three-dimensional (3D)-methods should be used. We ...

Aortic stiffening, assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity, is associated with CKD. Transmission of excessive flow pulsatility into the low-impedance renal microvasculature may mediate this association. However, direct analyses of macrovascular-microvascular relations in the kidney are limited. Using arterial tonometry, iohexol clearance, and magnetic resonance imaging, we related arterial stiffness, ...
