the 3-year follow-up period 38 patients experienced MACE (acute myocardial infarction, coronary intervention, or cardiac death). A receiver operating characteristic curve demonstrated that the best cut-off point of a baPWV for predicting a MACE was 13.35 m/s. A univariate binary logistic regression model demonstrated that only the baPWV had a significant odds ratio for MACE: 2.30 (1.10-4.81), pZ0.024. Other risk factors including BP and age (with the sut-off point at the lowest tercile -49.0
