AIM The SYNTAX score is a semi-quantitative angiographic tool used to determine the extent and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD). Automatic computer-assisted measurement of the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) is a reproducible and valid method by which to assess arterial stiffness. Limited information is available for the association between the SYNTAX score and arterial stiffness in a CAD patient. We aim to assess the association between arterial stiffness determined by PWV… CONTINUE READING
