2007) Value of ambulatory arterial stiffness index and 24-h pulse pressure to predict progression of albuminuria in elderly people with diabetes mellitus.
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.
