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.
