Using these inputs it becomes possible to calculate time-resolved wall stress of the left ventricle, the true mechanical load imposed by the systemic circulation on the left ventricle, and an important determinant of normal and abnormal cardiovascular function. Importantly, the study of these complex time-varying phenomena is currently feasible in clinical practice datasets, using noninvasive tools (although specialized software is required to combine and align the flow, pressure, and time-resolved left ventricular wall dimensions).

At the same time, Large Artery Damage was defined as a PWV above 10 m/s. 5th percentile of the expected mean value for their age. 1% of individuals between 40 and 50 years of age had PWV . 10 m/s). These worrisome findings (concerning the prevalence of both early and advanced arterial damage in a so-called “low cardiovascular risk area”) still need to be carefully interpreted, as the authors point out themselves: even if the study was conducted in a very large sample of an homogenous population including several age strata and representative of different social and economic groups, the authors cannot exclude that a white coat effect as well as a historical cohort effect (when comparing to values defined by the European Reference Values Collaboration—using cohorts with as many as 20 years of follow-up) could have influenced the final results.
