Arterial stiffness index beta and cardio-ankle vascular index inherently depend on blood pressure but can be readily corrected
Objectives: Arterial stiffness index &bgr; and cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) are widely accepted to quantify the intrinsic exponent (&bgr;0) of the blood pressure (BP)-diameter relationship.Expand

Validity and repeatability of the Vicorder apparatus: a comparison with the SphygmoCor device
Aortic stiffness, an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and all-cause mortality, can be estimated non-invasively by measuring carotid to femoral (aortic) pulse wave velocity (aPWV). TheExpand
