    Introduction: Subclinical atherosclerosis, which can be identified by elevated coronary artery calcium (CAC) or arterial stiffness as measured by the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), has been linked to major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs). Nevertheless, there are few comparable data from these two assessments of the same population. Methods: Patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) who were asymptomatic or symptomatic and underwent coronary computed tomography and coronary angiography (CAVI) were enrolled and followed until December 2019 for the occurrence of MACEs (cardiovascular [CV] death, nonfatal myocardial infarction [MI], and nonfatal stroke). A cause-specific hazard model was used to look at how the CAC score related to CAVI and long-term MACEs. Results: All in all, 8687 .. Read More»
