Increased arterial stiffness and excessive pressure pulsatility have emerged as important risk factors for a number of common disorders of aging, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, cognitive impairment, and renal disease. The triple-threat combination of robust associations between arterial stiffness and the foregoing disorders, a marked increase in arterial stiffness with advancing age and the graying of our society, has led to intensive efforts to identify mechanisms that contribute to… CONTINUE READING
