Objective: In this study, we determined the relationship between the ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) and clinical and laboratory parameters in patients with acromegaly.

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

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.
