Abstract

Objective: Arterial stiffness is associated with major adverse cardiovascular events. Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), a novel marker of arterial stiffness, which is weakly influenced by systolic blood pressure, is a sensitive marker the atherosclerosis and arteriolosclerosis. The aim of this study is to investigate arterial stiffness by CAVI in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX).
