Table 1

From: Proximal aortic stiffness in the paediatric adolescent population

  Pediatrics Young Adult p
Brachial Pulse Pressure (mmHg) 38.3 ± 7.4 44.7 ± 9.1 NS
Aortic Distensibility (mmHg-1) AA 12.5 ± 4.6 7.8 ± 2.7 0.013
  PDA 9.6 ± 4.7 7.6 ± 2.5 NS
  DDA 12.9 ± 7.7 9.9 ± 3 NS
  1. A significant difference (one-way ANOVA) is apparent in AA distensibility between the paediatric and young adult cohort (p<0.05) with no significant difference at the two more distal planes of assessment.
