Abstract

The expansion of HIV epidemic and scaling up of antiretroviral therapy in developing countries raise a concern for the development of cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients living in those areas. Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a non-invasive and objective measure of arterial wall elasticity. Arterial stiffness measures vascular damage secondary to ageing, hypertension and inflammation of the vascular wall. An elevated PWV has been established as an indicator of CVD.
