Arterial Pulse Wave Velocity and Cognition With Advancing Age

Elias, Merrill F; Robbins, Michael A; Budge, Marc; Abhayaratna, Walter; Dore, Gregory A; Elias, Penelope K

Description

We hypothesized that carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), a marker of arterial stiffness, interacts with age such that the magnitude of associations between PWV and cognitive performance are greater with increasing age and that this interaction is observed despite adjustments for demographic variables, mean arterial pressure, and cardiovascular risk factors. PWV was estimated using applanation tonometry in 409 dementia- and stroke-free participants of the Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study...[Show more]
