The 2017 ACC/AHA stage 1 hypertension is associated with arterial stiffness: a prospective analysis


Figure 2. Risks of developing an increased ba-PWV in association with blood pressure changes during follow-up. The OR (95% CI) was adjusted for age, sex, education, current smoking, current drinking, physical activity, body-mass index, fasting plasma glucose, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and urinary albumin-to-creatine ratio. Forty-eight participants had missing data on BP measurements during follow-up and were not included in the analysis. BP, blood pressure; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; Ba-PWV, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity; OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval.
