Objective: To investigate the correlation between the differences between the two adjacent pulse wave velocities and body mass index (BMI). Methods: Body mass index and pulse velocity difference were measured in 60 patients. Results: The difference of pulse wave velocity between adjacent two times in patients with BMI < 24 was less than that in patients with BMI ≥ 24, the difference was statistically significant. Conclusion: Pulse velocity difference is related to body mass index.
