Comparison of aortic pulse wave velocity measured by three techniques: Complior, SphygmoCor and Arteriograph.

Abstract

BACKGROUND New 2007 European Society of Hypertension guidelines recommend measuring arterial stiffness in patients with arterial hypertension, suggesting a carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity over 12 m/s as an estimate of subclinical organ damage. Considering this cutoff point, it is worth exploring whether or not there are significant differences in… (More)
