Three dimensional modelling of the effect of arterial pulse wave velocity and body size on left ventricular geometry
Aims : To determine the changes in LV geometry associated with aortic pulse wave velocity using 3D cardiac imaging of the heart.
There is a strong correlation between PWV, age and mean arterial blood pressure.
The models also demonstrated strong associations between PWV and wall thickness.
age is the strongest independent predictor of PWV.
