The Predictive Value of Blood Pressure and Arterial Stiffness in Institutionalized Very Aged Population (PARTAGE) study is a 2-year cohort study of 1,130 subjects living in 72 nursing homes in France and Italy.
These findings suggest that SBP, DBP, and PWV provide different information in the very elderly. The results of the prospective, longitudinal, long-term PARTAGE study will allow further insight into this and provide additional in-depth information about the respective prognostic value of the measurement of peripheral BP and PWV.
