Sobre nuestros pacientes con ERCA, existen otros beneficios en esta poblacion, con algunas pruebas especificas como el indice tobillo-brazo o el analisis de la onda de pulso arterial (arteriograph
), que nos permitira detectar el paciente de mayor riesgo con calcificacion de rigidez a nivel del arbol vascular (20).
(TensioMed Kft., Hungary) was used to measure aortic pressure indices, aortic PWV (PWVao), and aortic augmentation index (AIx), with the subject lying supine for at least 10 minutes in a temperature-controlled room (22 [+ or -] 2[degrees]C).
To the best of our knowledge, the largest databases of RIs of cSBP and cAIx in pediatrics come from Hungary  and Germany, in which the Arteriograph
and Mobil-O-Graph System were respectively used .
Between these two Nexfin measurements, the pulse wave velocity and augmentation index profiles in the supine position was estimated using the Arteriograph
(TensioMed, Budapest, Hungary) (16).
The vessels are studied in an isobaric arteriograph
. Arterial diameter measurements are made over a range of pressures (20-120mmHg) to assess the vessels' myogenic reactivity responses (n=6 per group).
The invasively and noninvasively validated instrument, Arteriograph
The RHR (beat/min) and blood pressures (mmHg) were calculated in accordance with suggestions of the European Society of Hypertension (ESH).19 The volunteers, who took a rest in the supine position at least five minutes, were evaluated by the commercially available TensioMedTM Arteriograph
(TensioMed Ltd, Hungary) to calculate these parameters.

Vascular stiffness: Vascular stiffness can be investigated with an Arteriograph
. This is a validated oscillometric technique that can assess the elasticity of the arteries.
