OBJECTIVE Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) is an indicator of atherosclerotic cardiovascular risks. To identify patients with coronary atherosclerosis before the onset of angina pectoris or myocardial infarction will be desirable. METHODS We measured the ankle-brachial index and baPWV in 150 consecutive patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) imaging was available in target lesions of 130 patients with symptomatic CAD before… CONTINUE READING
