BACKGROUND Arterial stiffness and wave reflections are independent predictors of cardiovascular disease. Metabolic syndrome (MS) is related to increased aortic stiffness in several populations. However, it is unclear whether the association of MS with aortic stiffness differs according to the considered definition. Moreover, data regarding the association… CONTINUE READING
