According to Sugawara et al .,[9] brachial-ankle PWV (baPWV) value in healthy controls aged 19-34 years is around 950 cm/s.
In this study, we aimed to evaluate the association of longterm exposure to transportation noise levels and their temporal structure with baPWV in an adult population-based Swiss cohort by assessing residential outdoor annual average levels of road, railway, and aircraft noise; total (all-source) noise intermittency ratio; and total number of noise events, and accounting for several confounders including coexposure to traffic-related air pollution.
Similarly, total skeletal muscle mass and LSM were also inversely correlated with baPWV (r = -0.239, P = 0.022 and r = -0.262, P = 0.012, resp.).
However, women who reported poor sleep had a higher incidence of CAC, and men with poor sleep had a higher mean baPWV
Methods: Echocardiographic data, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) level, and baPWV were assessed in 111 consecutive patients admitted for acute dyspnea.
In the current study, the composite measure of aortic and peripheral arterial stiffness (baPWV) was significantly reduced in the blueberry group after the 8 weeks, even though there was no change in the gold standard of aortic stiffness, the cfPWV measurement, in either group.
baPWV Widely used in ++ large scale trials for its convenience measurement.
(2006) reported longitudinal changes in baPWV from the first trimester to 1 month after delivery in normal pregnancies.

Objective: To investigate the role of Brachial ankle Pulse Wave Relocity (baPWV) and cfPWV on the risk of Coronary artery disease and the interaction between baPWV and risk factors of Coronary artery disease (CAD).
Right and left brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) was used to assess stiffness in the central arteries.
