BACKGROUND Although it was reported that pulse pressure of the peripheral artery could differentiate patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) from those without CHD, it is not known whether pulsatility of the ascending aortic pressure waveform differentiates patients with CHD from those without CHD. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the pulsatility of ascending aortic pressure is associated with an increased risk of CHD. METHODS For this study, we enrolled 293 subjects who… CONTINUE READING
