Comparison of atherosclerotic indicators between cardio ankle vascular index and brachial ankle pulse wave velocity.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Aortic pulse wave velocity has been used for evaluating atherosclerosis. Recently, the development of the volume plethysmographic method has made it possible to easily measure the index of the pulse wave velocity. The brachial ankle pulse wave velocity and cardio ankle vascular index are used for estimating the extent of atherosclerosis. The… (More)
