The 2017 ACC/AHA stage 1 hypertension is associated with arterial stiffness: a prospective analysis

Proportions (%) of participants developing an increased ba-PWV in different blood pressure categories. 2017 ACC/AHA blood pressure categories (A); systolic blood pressure categories (B); diastolic blood pressure categories (C). SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; Ba-PWV, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity.
