Description The risk factors of cardiovascular diseases influence arterial stiffness. Our aim was to observe the impact of skeletal muscle mass and body fatt mass on arterial stiffness. We evaluated data of volunteers from study Kardiovize 2030, the body composition (bioimpedance) and arterial stiffness. From all the volunteers we chose only nonsmoking women (n=135, aged 18-84), to eliminate confoundig factors such as smoking and male sex. Arterial stiffness was measured with Vasera 1500 (Fukuda), body composition was measured with Inbody. Results: After adjusting the results of cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) on age of women, it turns out that the increased skeletal muscle mass corelates with decreased CAVI (p<0,001). The body fat mass, abdominal fat area, WHR did not corelate clinicly significant with CAVI. Conclusion: Skeletal muscle mass corelates negatively with CAVI, there are on the other hand another confounders of arterial stiffness we didnt investigate (dyslipidemia, physical activity).
