Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

4 Citazioni (Scopus)


The well‐performed meta‐analysis of Matsushita et alrepresents an important contribution to the knowledge about theclinical meaning of arterial stiffness parameters, suggesting that CAVI is associated positively with a slightly increased risk of CVevents, but not of total mortality. However, caution is needed in interpretingthese findings, due to the limited number of prospectivestudies eligible for the meta‐analysis and the relatively low numberof subjects included, mostly living in Japan or China. Therefore, additionalstudies, preferably with a prospective design and involvingparticipants also from non‐Asian countries, are required to betterdefine the prognostic role and the clinical utility of CAVI
