Ethnic Difference in Proximal Aortic Stiffness: An Observation From the Dallas Heart Study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study aims to compare ethnic difference in proximal aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) and characteristic impedance (Zc). BACKGROUND Increased aortic stiffness is an independent predictor of target organ damage, incident hypertension, and all-cause mortality. However, previous studies have not directly assessed proximal aortic function in… (More)
