Aortic stiffness for the detection of preclinical left ventricular diastolic dysfunction: pulse wave velocity versus pulse pressure

Abhayaratna, Walter; Srikusalanukul, Wichat; Budge, Marc

Description

OBJECTIVE: An age-dependent relationship between aortic and left ventricular (LV) stiffening has been observed in community-based adults. Our aim was to compare the performances of wave reflection-dependent (pulse pressure) and independent [carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV)] indexes of aortic stiffness to detect preclinical LV diastolic dysfunction. METHODS: In this case-control study, a stratified subsample of participants of a population-based echocardiographic survey with LV ejection...[Show more]
