After the definition of the arterial phenotypes as described above, we set to examine the lifelong RF exposures that could explain why individuals of the same chronological age differ in arterial age by as much as two decades (T1 vs T3). EARLY DETERMINANTS OF ARTERIAL STIFFNESS—A LIFE COURSE APPROACH As the twig is bent, so is the tree inclined. Proverbial saying from the early 18th century2. The first arterial studies conducted within the AGAHLS reported that RFs other than elevated BP (a known major determinant), such as poorer cardiopulmonary fitness, a central pattern of fat distribution and the metabolic syndrome (MetS) were cross-sectionally associated with higher levels of arterial stiffness.

Surprisingly in this cohort other than blood pressure, established cardiovascular risk factors had only a modest effect on aortic stiffness and wave reflection, whilst inflammation emerged as in important predictor [50]. In a similar vein, in 3,769 men and women from the Whitehall II cohort, a wide range of traditional and novel cardiovascular risk factors were determined at baseline (1991À1993) and aortic PWV was measured at follow-up (2007À2009). In this large prospective study, central obesity (often closely associated with inflammation) was a strong predictor of aortic stiffness.
