Michener, Katherine.

Abstract: Among the aging population, chronic kidney disease and cognitive impairment are highly prevalent and account for a significant portion of medical problems and health care costs. Unfortunately, the disease mechanisms are not well understood. Aortic stiffness increases with age and results in transmittance of increased pressures to the microvasculature of both organs. Aortic stiffness has ... read more
