Background—Aging results in vascular stiffening and an increase in the velocity of the pressure wave as it travels down the aorta. Increased aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV) has been associated with mortality in clinical but not general populations. The objective of this investigation was to determine whether aPWV is associated with total and cardiovascular (CV) mortality and CV events in a community-dwelling sample of older adults. Methods and Results—aPWV was measured at baseline in 2488… Expand
Impact of aortic stiffness on cardiovascular disease in patients with chest pain: assessment with direct intra-arterial measurement.
TLDR
Results suggest that aPWV is an independent risk factor for future CV events and CAD in patients with chest pain, and was not associated with either new stroke or congestive heart failure. Expand
Arterial Stiffness and Cardiovascular Events: The Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
Higher aortic stiffness assessed by PWV is associated with increased risk for a first cardiovascular event and improves risk prediction when added to standard risk factors and may represent a valuable biomarker of cardiovascular disease risk in the community. Expand

TLDR
Mortality from all-causes and from cardiovascular disease significantly increased as PWV increased in the entire follow-up period as an increased PWV can predict cardiovascular mortality in middle-aged and elderly Japanese men. Expand
Epidemiology and Prevention Arterial Stiffness and Cardiovascular Events The Framingham Heart Study
Background—Various measures of arterial stiffness and wave reflection have been proposed as cardiovascular risk markers. Prior studies have not assessed relations of a comprehensive panel ofExpand
Prognostic Value of Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity as Index of Arterial Stiffness in the General Population
TLDR
In a general Danish population, a sex- and age-stratified random sample of 1678 Danes, APWV predicted a composite of cardiovascular outcomes above and beyond traditional cardiovascular risk factors, including 24-hour MAP. Expand
Predictive Value of Brachial-Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity for Cardiovascular Events
TLDR
The results of this study show that higher baPWV was a predictive marker for CV events, especially ischemic stroke, and suggests that antiplatelet therapy may be needed in diabetic patients with a high baP WV for prevention of isChemic stroke. Expand
Relationship of Arterial Stiffness Index and Pulse Pressure With Cardiovascular Disease and Mortality
TLDR
Although both improved risk prediction for new‐onset CVD and mortality in a large community‐based population, PP appears to have a larger clinical value than ASI. Expand
Aortic stiffness and cardiovascular risk in type 2 diabetes
TLDR
Evidence is provided that aortic PWV is a forceful independent marker of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients, as it has already been demonstrated in hypertensive individuals and Prospective trials are needed to assess the improvement in cardiovascular risk prediction for widespread use of aortIC PWV in diabetic Patients. Expand
Age-dependent association of pulse wave velocity with coronary artery disease and myocardial aging in high-risk patients
TLDR
In high cardiovascular risk patients, an age-dependent association of cf-PWV with CAD and diastolic dysfunction was evinced, and results suggest that measuring arterial stiffness in elderly high-risk patients may lack clinical value. Expand
Arterial stiffness measured as pulse wave velocity is highly correlated with coronary atherosclerosis in asymptomatic patients.
TLDR
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. Expand

Correlates of aortic stiffness in elderly individuals: a subgroup of the Cardiovascular Health Study.
TLDR
In these elderly participants, aortic stiffness was positively associated with risk factors associated with the insulin resistance syndrome, increased common carotid intima-media thickness, heart rate, and decreased physical activity measured several years earlier. Expand
Pulse pressure and risk for myocardial infarction and heart failure in the elderly.
TLDR
Elevated PP is a powerful independent predictor of cardiovascular end points in the elderly and was present in normotensive individuals and individuals with isolated systolic hypertension but not in individuals with diastolic hypertension. Expand

TLDR
Results provide the first direct evidence that in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis, arterial alterations, as determined from carotid Einc, are strong independent predictors of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. Expand
Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity Predicts Cardiovascular Mortality in Subjects >70 Years of Age
TLDR
In subjects 70 to 100 years old, aortic PWV is a strong, independent predictor of cardiovascular death, whereas systolic or pulse pressure was not, and this prospective result will need to be confirmed in an intervention trial. Expand

Pulse pressure, an easily measurable correlate of pulsatile hemodynamic load, is an independent predictor of risk of CHF in this elderly cohort of men and women. Expand
