  • a Data are unstandardized regression coefficients β and their 95% CI. β coefficients represent the change in stiffness per quartile increase in UACR. aAIX, aortic augmentation index; SAC SV/PP, systemic arterial compliance estimated from stroke volume/pulse pressure; CFTT is adjusted for height.
