Background and Objectives:Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is an ideal indicator of arterial stiffness. This study investigated arterial stiffness of different vascular regions in patients suffering with Behcet’s disease (BD), and we assessed whether arterial stiffness was affected by the clinical parameters of BD. Subjects and Methods:This study included 53 BD patients (mean age: 38±8 years) and 65 healthy controls (mean age: 38±8 years) who were without any known cardiovascular diseases.
