ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1445-5994.2008.01811.x||Abstract:||We studied the relationship of arterial stiffness, measured by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity and inflammation, measured by serum erythrocyte sedimentation rate among 334 ischaemic stroke patients. There was a significant correlation between carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (P = 0.001), a relationship independent of age, hypertension, diabetes and smoking. Arterial stiffness and inflammation are associated among ischaemic stroke patients and are independent of established vascular risk factors. © 2008 The Authors.||Source Title:||Internal Medicine Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129813||ISSN:||14440903||DOI:||10.1111/j.1445-5994.2008.01811.x|
