Central pulse pressure (PP) has been suggested a better predictor of cardiovascular risk than brachial PP, and its routine noninvasive assessment can be useful for risk stratification. The present study evaluated the capability of a radiofrequency-based carotid wall tracking to estimate central PP from distension curves, comparing the values of carotid PP as obtained by wall tracking with those provided by applanation tonometry. Furthermore, the associations of carotid PP with intermediate markers of cardiovascular risk, like carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and left ventricular mass (LVM), were assessed.

Abstract

Central pulse pressure (PP) has been suggested a better predictor of cardiovascular risk than brachial PP, and its routine noninvasive assessment can be useful for risk stratification. The present study evaluated the capability of a radiofrequency-based carotid wall tracking to estimate central PP from distension curves, comparing the values of carotid PP as obtained by wall tracking with those provided by applanation tonometry. Furthermore, the associations of carotid PP with intermediate markers of cardiovascular risk, like carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and left ventricular mass (LVM), were assessed.
