Nonlinear association between pulse wave velocity and cognitive function: a population-based study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Arterial stiffness has been hypothesized to contribute to cognitive decline. However, previous studies have reported inconsistent results. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the association between carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV), a marker of arterial stiffness, and cognitive function.
