A recent study has demonstrated that the pulsatility of the ascending aorta is a strong predictive factor for restenosis after coronary angioplasty. However, whether the pulsatility of the ascending aorta is still a significant predictor for restenosis in elderly patients with a stiffer aorta is unknown. We investigated the relation between arterial pulsatility in the ascending aorta and restenosis after coronary angioplasty in patients aged > 60 years. Eighty-seven consecutive patients (80 men… CONTINUE READING
