Cardiologists study new aspects of vascular ageing

A team of scientists from the Medical Institute of RUDN University compared two factors of vascular aging—CF-PWV and CAVI. Both of these parameters determine arterial stiffness, the main indicator of vascular aging, with high precision. However, they are influenced by age and certain metabolism abnormalities in different ways. The study is expected to help cardiologists find effective diagnostic methods for individual patients. The results of the work were published in the Journal of Hypertension.
