OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that one minus the slope of diastolic on systolic blood pressure in individual 24-h ambulatory blood pressure recordings (ambulatory arterial stiffness index) might reflect arterial stiffness and predict cardiovascular mortality. METHODS In volunteers and a population recruited in China, we studied concordance between ambulatory arterial stiffness index and established indexes of arterial stiffness. We assessed the predictive value of ambulatory arterial stiffness… CONTINUE READING
