A Novel Cardiovascular Risk Biometric: Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity
This article introduces aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV) and explains how this new biometric could help underwriters to predict major cardiovascular events and mortality.
Migraine May Increase Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Previous research has shown that migraine is a risk factor for stroke, although the reasons why are not understood. A recent study demonstrates that migraine might also be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and mortality.
