Background: The optimal cutoff values of the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) for predicting cardiovascular disease (CVD) were examined in patients with hypertension. Methods and Results: A total of 7,656 participants were followed prospectively. The hazard ratio for the development of CVD increased significantly as the baPWV increased, independent of conventional risk factors. The receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis showed that the optimal cutoff values for predicting CVD was 18.3 m/s. This cutoff value significantly predicted THE incidence of CVD. Conclusions: The present analysis suggests that the optimal cutoff value for CVD in patients with hypertension is 18.3 m/s.
