The elastic properties of the arterial wall have been the subject of physiological, clinical and biomedical research for many years. There is convincing evidence that the elastic properties of the large arteries are seriously impaired in the presence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), due to alterations in the intrinsic structural and functional characteristics of vessels [1]. Early detection of changes in the elastic modulus of arteries would provide a powerful tool for both monitoring patients at high cardiovascular risk and testing the effects of pharmaceuticals aimed at stabilizing existing plaques by stiffening them or lowering the lipids.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
