Vascular Stiffness and Increased Pulse Pressure in the Aging Cardiovascular System

Figure 3

This figure shows pooled RR and 95% CI for aortic PWV and total CV events (a), CV mortality (b), and total mortality (c), according to baseline risk and disease state. Data are provided for high versus low aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) (left column), increase in aortic PWV by 1 m/s (middle column), and increase in aortic PWV by 1 SD (right column) (see [46]).
