Traditionally, endothelial function has been measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery.
However, PAT is a novel technique which has less operator dependence and may be more convenient as a measure of endothelial function.
The BAMB -Buildings As Material Banks- Project Consortium has the pleasure to invite you to the Annual meeting of the BAMB Stakeholder Network that will be held in Brussels on the 24th of January. The EU funded BAMB project is enabling a systemic shift to a circular building sector.The pathophysiological basis for race-related differences in cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk has not been established.Endothelial dysfunction, which precedes obstructive atherosclerotic disease, may contribute to CVD disparities.Patients with a preoperative diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma were excluded.Preoperative, operative and postoperative variables were evaluated.A total of 75.0% of subjects had a history of previous cholecystectomy.The main presenting symptom was abdominal pain (82.7%).Take the chance to mingle with other members of the BAMB Stakeholder Network and to get engaged in our Special Interest Groups. The event is open to all registered members of the BAMB Stakeholder Network.Not yet registered but interested in following the BAMB project? If you're a stakeholder in the building and construction industry who's interested in exchanging ideas and knowledge, join the BAMB Stakeholder Network via the online form found on our website.We want to provide you with an update on what has been learned in the project so far, and hear your feedback on the tools in development.Keynotes will be given by representatives from the European Commission and the construction sector, setting the scene for this exciting innovation project.
