Aortic augmentation index is inversely associated with cardiorespiratory fitness in men without known coronary heart disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We investigated whether the aortic augmentation index (AIx), a measure of arterial wave reflection and stiffness, is associated with cardiorespiratory fitness in men without known coronary heart disease (CHD). METHODS Asymptomatic men (n = 201, mean age 51 +/- 9.2 years) referred for a screening exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) underwent… (More)
