      Pristaj, Nadia; Saeed, Sahrai; Midtbø, Helga Bergljot; Halland, Hilde; Matre, Knut; Gerdts, Eva (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Introduction Sex-difference in types of cardiac organ damage has been reported in subjects with increased body mass index (BMI). However less is known about sex-differences in left ventricular (LV) myocardial function ...
    • Early vascular aging in young and middle-aged ischemic stroke patients: The Norwegian stroke in the young study 

      Saeed, Sahrai; Waje-Andreassen, Ulrike; Fromm, Annette; Øygarden, Halvor; Kokorina, Marina Victorovna; Næss, Halvor; Gerdts, Eva (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-11-18)
      Background: Ischemic stroke survivors have high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality even at young age, suggesting that early arterial aging is common among such patients. Methods: We measured aortic stiffness ...
    • Impact of arterio–ventricular interaction on first-phase ejection fraction in aortic stenosis 

      Einarsen, Eigir; Hjertaas, Johannes; Gu, Haotian; Matre, Knut; Chowienczyk, Philip J.; Gerdts, Eva; Chambers, John B.; Saeed, Sahrai (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Aims:  First-phase ejection fraction (EF1), the EF at the time to peak aortic jet velocity, has been proposed as a novel marker of peak systolic function in aortic stenosis (AS). This study aimed to explore the association ...
    • Masked hypertension in obesity: Potential predictors and arterial damage 

      Kenny, Isabel E.; Saeed, Sahrai; Gerdts, Eva; Midtbø, Helga Bergljot; Halland, Hilde; Lønnebakken, Mai Tone (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-02)
      Background: Masked hypertension (MHT), defined as normal office blood pressure (BP) but high ambulatory BP, has been associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Although MHT has been associated with obesity, there is ...
