BACKGROUND: The recognized reference method for endothelial function assessment is brachial artery diameter echo-tracking during flow mediated dilation (FMD) induced by reactive hyperaemia (RH). From the Mons-Korteweg equation, FMD should also reduce upper limb pulse wave velocity (PWV). The aim of our study was to compare echo-tracking FMD with PWV changes after RH. METHODS: Brachial diameter was assessed by echo-tracking (MyLAb 70, Easote, Italy) before and after 7min of ischemia induced by inflating a cuff on the right wirst 50mmHg above subject's systolic blood pressure...

A survey of joint mobility was conducted in 295 healthy children between the ages of 5 and 10 years who attended a London primary school. Estimates of the commonly used measurements, that is passive dorsiflexion of the wirsts and ankles, passive hypertension of the elbows and knee, were too insensitive to detect any age effect. However, a method of estimating extensibility of the 5th metacarpophalangeal joint in response to a standard load detected a highly significant inverse correlation between joint mobility and age in the samples significant inverse correlation between joint mobility and age in the samples tested ( r = -0...
