From: Minoxidil versus placebo in the treatment of arterial wall hypertrophy in children with Williams Beuren Syndrome: a randomized controlled trial

  Minoxidil Placebo   
mean (95% CI) mean (95% CI) ICC p value
CCA IMT (mm) 0.03 (-0.002 ; 0.06) 0.01 (-0.02 ; 0.04) 0.86 0.4
diameter (mm) 0.41 (0.26 ; 0.56) 0.05 (-0.08 ; 0.19) 0.56 0.0006
distensibility (%) 1.1 (-2.3 ; 4.4) 2.9 (-0.2 ; 6) 0.90 0.4
RHA IMT (mm) -0.04 (-0.08 ; 0.01) -0.06 (-0.10 ; -0.02) 0.66 0.4
diameter (mm) 0.02 (-0.15 ; 0.19) -0.23 (-0.37 ; -0.08) 0.63 0.03
distensibility (%) -1.1 (-8.5 ; 6.4) 1.8 (-4.8 ; 8.4) 0.01 0.6
   mean (SD) mean (SD)   
PWV (m/s) -0.8 (2.0) -1.5 (3.0)   0.7
24-H mean SBP (mmHg) 3.6 (8.7) 0.8 (7.1)   0.5
24-H mean DBP (mmHg) 1.6 (7.9) 0.9 (4.7)   0.6
  1. ICC: Intraclass correlation; CCA: common carotid artery; RHA: right humeral artery; IMT: intima media thickness; PWV: Pulse wave velocity;
  2. S/DBP: Systolic/Diastolic Blood Pressure; p value: linear mixed model except for PWV, 24-H mean SBP and DBP p value: Wilcoxon test; CI95%: bilateral confidence intervals at 95%
