Aortic vessel becomes stiffer with normal aging, as well
as vessel wall pathology. We evaluated aortic pulse wave
velocity (as a surrogate of aortic compliance) and its
relationship to age and cardiac function measurements in
291 normals with various age distributions and repeated
the evaluation at 5-year and 10-year followup.
