Association between home arterial stiffness index and target organ damage in hypertension: comparison with pulse wave velocity and augmentation index.

OBJECTIVES To clarify the implications of the home arterial stiffness index (HASI), we compared HASI with other arterial stiffness measures and investigated the association between HASI and hypertensive target organ damage (TOD). METHODS We assessed brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and the carotid augmentation index (cAIx) as measures of… (More)
