PURPOSE A previous study has shown age- and sex-related differences in abdominal aortic compliance. In that study blood pressure determined by auscultation in the brachial artery was assumed to be equal to blood pressure in the abdominal aorta. To validate our findings we investigated the pressure-diameter (P-D) relationship of the abdominal aorta. METHODS Diameter and pulsatile diameter change of the abdominal aorta were determined noninvasively by an ultrasound phase-locked echo-tracking… CONTINUE READING
