Abstract

Stiffening of large arteries predicts adverse cardiovascular outcomes. The estimation of the reliability of ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) determination in individual patients was the aim of the study. Seven-day ambulatory pressure monitoring enabled us to obtain 6 values in 6 full consecutive days. The interindividual variation of AASI is large. It is concluded that the determination of AASI from 24-hour blood pressure monitoring should be supplemented by blood pressure self-monitoring lasting several days irrespective of the method of AASI calculation.
