Table 3 Bivariate correlations between vascular structure and functional parameters and systolic blood pressure, heart ratio and body mass index

From: Association between smoking status and the parameters of vascular structure and function in adults: results from the EVIDENT study

  Age SBP HR BMI
PWV (n = 265) 0.558** 0.623** 0.169** 0.353**
IMT (n = 265) 0.687** 0.441** -0.054 0.250**

  1. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01.
  2. SBP: Systolic blood pressure; HR: heart rate; BMI: body mass index; IMT: Intima Media Thickness; PWV: pulse wave velocity; PAIx75: Peripheral or radial augmentation index adjusted for heart rate at 75 bpm, ABI: ankle brachial index.
