  1. Coefficients (r) and p-values are calculated by the Pearson correlation mode.
  2. SBP: systolic blood pressure ; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; MAP: mean arterial pressure; AIx: augmentation index; PWV: pulse wave velocity; SSS: Scandinavian Stroke Scale score; NIHSS: National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale; Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs); CAD: coronary artery disease ; CHF: congestive heart failure; LVH: left ventricular hypertrophy; WMHLS: white matter hypertension lesions; TIA: transitory ischemic attack; SSS: Scandinavian Stroke Scale score; NIHSS: National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale;
  3. Demographic and history data are expressed as n° (percentage).
  4. Significant R and p are in bold.
