OBJECTIVE Atherosclerosis leads to increased arterial resistance through thickening and stiffening of the arterial wall, a phenomenon largely known as arterial stiffness. M-mode propagation velocity of the descending thoracic aorta, named aortic velocity propagation (AVP) is a novel method for the measurement of the aortic stiffness. We aimed to investigate the difference between early and late values of AVP after successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in ST-elevation… CONTINUE READING
