Regional differences in arterial behavior are well-known. Avolio et al. was one of the first documenting the differences between subjects from urban and rural areas concerning the effects on PWV and arterial distensibility of age and blood pressure. Subjects from urban areas (rural Guangzhou was compared to Beijing; note that both areas had low cholesterol levels) had significantly higher salt intake, hypertension prevalence, and higher PWV values [42,43]. More Comprehensive Populations: Early Vascular Aging and Stroke-Prone Populations With the predictive power of PWV being more pronounced for younger age groups and for stroke [25], it would seem important and logical to focus attention on PWV determinants in stroke-prone populations or populations with a high incidence of stroke.
