Özet

Arterial stiffness and its hemodynamic consequences are associated with adverse cardiovascular events. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and augmentation index (AIx) are noninvasive markers of arterial stiffness. Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a systemic, autoimmune disease affecting mainly the small vessels. The aim of this study was to evaluate the arterial stiffness parameters and hemodynamics by oscillometric method in patients with SSc.
