Synopsis: 
The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between body composition and arterial stiffness documented by Doppler-derived renal resistive index (RRI). Independent factors affecting RRI were age, gender, BFP and CRP levels (all p-values were <0.05). Altered renal hemodynamic profile is involved in the long-term renal risk associated with body fat distribution.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Obesity is a major modifiable risk factor for atherosclerosis. Thus, early risk markers are needed to identify obese subjects. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between body composition and arterial stiffness documented by Doppler-derived renal resistive index (RRI).
