Table 2 Regression models for association of distensibility and PWV with AWT (Regression coefficients B/P).

From: Association of aortic wall thickness with stiffness in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA)

  With hypertension (N = 264) W/O hypertension (N = 159)
  B P B P
Distensibility of ascending aorta (%/mmhg) Model 1 -0.017 0.54 0.16 0.003
  Model 2 -0.016 0.54 0.164 0.001
Pulse wave velocity (m/s) Model 1 2.32 0.046 0.52 0.6
  Model 2 1.7 0.144 0.65 0.5
  1. Model 1: multivariable analysis accounting for age, sex, race, and BMI. Model 2: adjusted for variables in model 1 in addition to systolic blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, LDL, HDL, current smoking status, and smoking pack years.
