Arterial stiffness affects cardiac functions, peripheral circulation, and cardiovascular mortality. We examined whether arterial stiffness in different regions is equally affected by diabetes and other factors. The subjects were 161 patients with type 2 diabetes and 129 healthy subjects comparable in age and sex. Arterial stiffness was evaluated by measuring pulse wave velocity (PWV) in the heart-carotid, heart-brachial, heart-femoral, and femoral-ankle segments using an automatic device. The… CONTINUE READING
