Background:The optimal cutoff values of the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) for predicting cardiovascular disease (CVD) were examined in patients with hypertension.

Methods and Results:A total of 7,656 participants were followed prospectively. The hazard ratio for the development of CVD increased significantly as the baPWV increased, independent of conventional risk factors. The receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis showed that the optimal cutoff values for predicting CVD was 18.3 m/s. This cutoff value significantly predicted THE incidence of CVD.

Conclusions:The present analysis suggests that the optimal cutoff value for CVD in patients with hypertension is 18.3 m/s.
