Abstract
Aims: The purpose of the study was to investigate the agreement between carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) and augmentation index adjusted at heart rate 75 bpm (AI@75) and to examine the relationship of AI@75 and cfPWV to demographic factors and blood pressures (BPs) in Korean Americans. Methods: This study was a secondary analysis of a previous data set from 102 Korean Americans. AI@75 and cfPWV were measured using the SphygmoCor equipment. Age, gender, height, body weight and brachial BPs were included in the analysis. Result and conclusion: cfPWV and AI@75 showed a good agreement. DBP was independently associated with both cfPWV (p=.022) and AI@75 (p<.001). Although PP is considered a surrogate measure of arterial stiffness, it was related to neither cfPWV nor AI@75 in our ealthy middle-aged Korean Americans. Unlike cfPWV, AI@75 should be measured and analyzed carefully considering height since height was independently related to AI@75 (p<.001).
