BACKGROUND Recently, it has been demonstrated that aortic stiffness is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The objective of the present study was to accurately evaluate the aortic stiffness relative to the changes in aging using two-dimensional (2D) strain imaging in 39 comparatively normal patients (15-85 years). METHODS We obtained short-axis images of the abdominal aorta (Ao) and determined the peak circumferential strain (Ao-S) and strain rate (Ao-SR) and the time from… CONTINUE READING
