Subclinical vasculopathy and skeletal muscle metrics in the singapore longitudinal ageing study

shows the univariate, multivariable, age- (≥70) and sex-stratified (males) associations between subclinical vasculopathy with (A) gait speed, (B) knee strength, and (C) calf circumference/BMI. *AC calculated using derived central aortic pressures. Abbreviations: Calf circumference/BMI, calf circumference adjusted for body mass index; cIMT, carotid intima-medial thickness; aAIx, aortic augmentation index; cAIx, carotid augmentation index; AC, arterial compliance.
