Arterial stiffening is associated with a number of known cardiovascular risk factors, including advancing age, increased systolic blood pressure (SBP), diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, myocardial infarction, and obesity. Many methodologies, both invasive and noninvasive, have been applied to the assessment of the stiffening of large elastic arteries… CONTINUE READING
