Quantitative characteristics of elastic properties of the human aorta, carotid, femoral, and humeral arteries have been obtained in the study of autopsy materials. Their mathematical analysis revealed a statistically significant decrease of arterial wall elasticity with age. It is concluded that these data can be used to develop a method for the objective age determination for the purpose of forensic medical examination.
