Usefulness of colour tissue Doppler imaging in assessing aortic elastic properties in Type 1 diabetic patients.

Abstract:

AIMS: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with macrovascular disease and impaired aortic function. We hypothesized that the change in aortic elastic properties could be investigated with colour tissue Doppler imaging (CTDI) in Type 1 diabetic patients and that these findings could be related to the aortic stiffness index. METHODS: We examined by echocardiography 66 patients with Type 1 DM (mean age 35 +/- 10 years, mean duration of disease 20 +/- 9 years) without a history of arterial hypert...
