Özet

Objective: Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), the current "gold-standard" measure of arterial stiffness, has emerged as an important independent predictor of cardiovascular events. The increased PWV is recognized as an indicator of atherosclerosis. The relationship between isolated coronary artery ectasia (CAE) and carotid-femoral PWV has not been well-described. The aim of our study was to assess this relation.
