BACKGROUND Proximal aortic compliance has been shown to be lower in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients compared with healthy matched controls. Assessment of proximal systemic compliance can be performed non-invasively and, therefore, the measurement of proximal compliance may be useful as a risk marker of the likelihood of significant coronary disease. METHODS Systemic arterial compliance (SAC) and regional aortic stiffness (beta-index of the transverse arch) were measured non-invasively… CONTINUE READING
