BACKGROUND In cardiovascular (CV) epidemiology, interest increases in studying etiologic and prognostic implications of early structural or functional changes of the large arteries. Examples of such measurements are pulse wave velocity (PWV), carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and augmentation index (AIx). PWV and CIMT are established markers of CV risk whereas the role of AIx as indicator of risk has not fully been established. Therefore, our aim was to relate AIx to CV risk and to compare… CONTINUE READING
