Objective: In this study, we determined the relationship between the ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) and clinical and laboratory parameters in patients with acromegaly.
KEYWORDS: Acromegaly, Ambulatory arterial stiffness index, Cardiovascular disease, Hypertension.
The ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) is strongly correlated with conventional measurement methods of arterial stiffness, such as pulse wave velocity (PWV) and the augmentation index (Aix), and provides prognostic information on cardiovascular mortality.9,10
Ambulatory Arterial Stiffness Index: The slope of the regression curve obtained from marking the SBP and DBP values from 24-hour blood pressure records of each patient on a (x, y) plane was calculated.
Ambulatory arterial stiffness index: merits and limitations of a simple surrogate measure of arterial compliance.
Ambulatory arterial stiffness index derived from 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring.
In recent years, several noninvasive methods for the calculation of arterial stiffness have come to light, such as the ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI), the home arterial stiffness index (HASI), the central and peripheral augmentation index (CAIx and PAIx) or the pulse wave velocity (PWV), which despite the advent of other techniques remains the clinical gold standard in this area.
Relationship between ambulatory arterial stiffness index and subclinical target organ damage in hypertensive patients.
