abstract

  • Left ventricular and carotid artery structure are related to the shape of the central pressure waveform. Although the increase in left ventricular mass seen in subjects with a dominant late systolic peak pressure appears to be directly related to the shape of the pressure waveform, changes in the structural and physical properties of the carotid artery appear to be more closely related to the aging process.
