Background Arterial stiffness is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) is the most recognized and established index of arterial stiffness. An emerging automatic measure of PWV primarily used in the Asian countries is brachial-ankle PWV (baPWV). Method To systematically compare these two methodologies, we conducted a multicenter study involving a total of 2287 patients. Results There was a significant positive relation between baPWV and… 

Arterial stiffness measured as pulse wave velocity is highly correlated with coronary atherosclerosis in asymptomatic patients.

Ba-PWV correlated well with coronary atherosclerosis and lifestyle modification is an efficacious therapeutic intervention for preventing the progression of arterial stiffness and should be included in community screening programs.

Heart-Thigh Cuff Pulse Wave Velocity: A Novel Nontechnical Measure of Arterial Stiffness.

The automatic htPWV method, which permits the data acquisition with minimum technical skill, time, intrusion and in an operator-independent fashion, has good potential as a screening device for assessing arterial stiffness in a clinical setting.

Determinants of brachial–ankle pulse wave velocity in a Japanese population: A cohort study

Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that factors of such as FRS, body mass index, alcohol consumption and AI P75 were significantly correlated with baPWV, indicating that FRS is also applicable as an index of arterial stiffness in Japanese people.

Prognostic impact of regional arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients

Higher baPWV may be a risk factor for stroke and CVD, but the prognostic impact of regional PWVs is still unclear in patients with hypertension.
