    E J Balkestein
    Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht, Department of Pharmacology, Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands
    Hypertension 38:1190-7. 2001
    ..Cross-sectional compliance and distensibility coefficients are influenced by the ACE I/D genotype, but this influence depends on the vascular territory and genetic background...
  2. ncbi The effect of weight loss with or without exercise training on large artery compliance in healthy obese men
    E J Balkestein
    Department of Pharmacology, Maastricht University, The Netherlands
    J Hypertens 17:1831-5. 1999
    ..Obesity is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Large artery compliance is thought to be associated with cardiovascular risk. The effect of weight loss on large artery compliance is not yet clarified...

    L M van Bortel
    Department of Pharmacology, Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht, Maastricht University, The Netherlands
    J Hypertens 17:701-5. 1999
    ..Drugs that selectively decrease high pulse pressure may be of interest for these patients. Such drugs have a more pronounced effect on large arteries than on resistance vessels...
