No difference between the groups was found. However, within the experimental group (and not in the placebo group) a statistically significant decrease of the index CAVI SX both in T1 (Z = – 1.96, p <.50) and in T2 (Z = -2.34 ; p <.50) is observed. The CAVI DX index and the index ABI DX decrease statistically significantly (respectively Z = -2.32; p <.905 and Z = -2.70, p <.01), but this difference is observed only in T2 and not in T1.
