Augmentation index and the evolution of aortic disease in marfan-like syndromes.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The augmentation index at a heart rate of 75 beats/min (AIx@HR75) and central pulse pressure (CPP) can be measured noninvasively with applanation tonometry (APT). In this observational study, we investigated the relationship between AIx@HR75, CPP and aortic disease in patients with Marfan-like syndromes. METHODS We performed APT in 78… (More)
