Abstract

Aims: Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is an accepted evaluation method to assess vascular changes and determine cardiovascular disease risk in type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients. The aim of this study was to identify atherosclerosis risk by using oscillometric device in pediatric patients who had T1D but no end organ impairment and no cardiovascular disease findings.
