Central Hemodynamics Could Explain the Inverse Association Between Height and Cardiovascular Mortality

Reeve, Jake C.; Abhayaratna, Walter; Davies, Justin E.; Sharman, James E.

Description

Background:Mechanisms underlying the inverse relationship between height and cardiovascular mortality are unknown but could relate to central hemodynamics. We sought to determine the relation of height to central and peripheral hemodynamics, as well as clinical characteristics.Methods:The study population was comprised of 1,152 randomly selected community-dwelling adults (aged 67.7±12.3 years; 48% men). Brachial blood pressure (BP) was recorded by sphygmomanometry; central BP and aortic pulse...[Show more]
