Table 2 The association between Aortic Indices and TFPI

From: Relationship between tissue factor pathway inhibitor and aortic stiffness assessed by MRI: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA)

  Model1 Model 2 Model3
Maximum aortic area, cm2 0.20 (0.06)* 0.08 (0.05) 0.05 (0.06)
Aortic strain, % -0.46 (0.18)† -0.38 (0.18)† -0.42 (0.20)†
Aortic distensibility, mmHg-1·10-3 -0.16 (0.04)** -0.11 (0.04)* -0.10 (0.04)†
Pulse wave velocity, m/s 0.34 (0.16) † 0.14 (0.17) 0.19 (0.19)
  1. Coefficients and SE (in brackets) were measured using multivariable linear regression models to assess the association of TFPI (per 10 ng/ml) with aortic measurements as dependent variables.
  2. Model 1: Unadjusted.
  3. Model 2: Adjusted for age, gender, and race.
  4. Model 3: Model2 + BMI, heart rate, systolic blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, hypertension medication use, diabetes mellitus, and smoking status.
