Triumphant third VascAgeNet Webinar!

Triumphant third VascAgeNet Webinar!

Today, the third VascAgeNet webinar on “How can I measure vascular ageing and who benefits most from the measurements of vascular ageing?” was successfully delivered by Dr Rosa Maria Bruno (INSERM, Paris). In her talk, Rosa Maria Bruno firstly discussed the methods, strengths and limitations of the biomarkers commonly used to assess arterial ageing. Secondly, she discussed the importance of measuring vascular age including how it can improve risk stratification,

Second successful VascAgeNet webinar!

Second successful VascAgeNet webinar!

Today, the second VascAgeNet webinar on “Basic Vascular Mechanics” was successfully delivered by Koen Reesink (Maastricht University). In his talk, Koen Reesink  presented an introduction to basic vascular mechanics. Firstly, he discussed the structure and function of arteries, providing details of how we characterize them. Secondly, he discussed the interpretation of measurements of vascular mechanics, considering applications and complications such as pressure dependence, follow-up measurements, and the relationship between tissue
