BACKGROUND increased arterial stiffness is a predictor of cardiovascular events. The stroke volume (SV) to pulse pressure (PP) ratio is an estimate of arterial capacitance. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a measure of arterial stiffness. This study evaluated the effect of left ventricular (LV) SV on the SV/PP-PWV relationship. METHODS 97 patients had(More)
BACKGROUND African American and African Caribbeans have high cardiovascular morbidity/mortality. Increased arterial stiffness is a marker of subclinical atherosclerosis, predicts higher cardiovascular risk, and causes isolated systolic hypertension. The objectives of the study were to compare arterial stiffness indices in African Americans and African(More)
