Abstract

We measured the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) in 491 normotensives and determined the "PWV index" (measured baPWV-theoretical baPWV) in 491 normotensives and 83 controlled hypertensives. Linear regression analysis revealed that the theoretical baPWV (cm/sec) was 0.21 × age(2) (years(2))-13.73 × age (years) + 0.05 × mean arterial pressure(2) (mmHg(2)) + 3.95 × heart rate (bpm) + 36.49 × gender (1 male; 0 female) + 733 (R(2) = 0.53). The calculated PWV index was significantly higher in 13 smokers than 70 nonsmokers among controlled hypertensives. The calculated PWV index might provide more precise information about inherent arterial stiffness.
