Assessment of central and peripheral arterial stiffness: studies indicating the need to use a combination of techniques.


BACKGROUND Several new techniques exist for measuring arterial stiffness, but their association with central pulse wave velocity (PWV), an established measure of central arterial stiffness, has not been compared in the same study. The aim of this study was to compare the agreement of the new techniques with central PWV. METHODS Fifteen men with coronary… (More)
