BACKGROUND The progression of atherosclerosis leads to increased arterial stiffness. The present study used brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) to evaluate the connection between arterial stiffness in patients with chest pain and the presence and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS On a retrospective basis, we analyzed the data of 703 consecutive patients who had undergone baPWV and an elective coronary angiogram for suspected CAD, between June 2010 and July 2012, at a… CONTINUE READING
