Conduit Diameter and Wall Remodeling in Elite Athletes and Spinal Cord Injury

Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 04/18/2012

Conversely, localized effects are evident with respect to the effect of exercise on arterial diameter. These findings have implications for the authors' understanding of the effects of exercise on arterial structure and function in humans.
