A New Index of “Cardiac Age” Derived from Echocardiography: Influence of Hypertension and Comparison with Pulse Wave Velocity


Although pulse wave velocity is the primary indicator of arteriosclerosis and is widely used as an index of vascular age in anti-aging medicine, no index is available to quantify cardiac age. We proposed a “cardiac age” index and sought to clarify its clinical significance. The study subjects were 234 patients with atherosclerosis-related diseases. These… (More)
