Sex differences in arterial stiffness and wave reflections may lead to disproportionate increases in afterload and myocardial work in women. We examined sex differences in arterial stiffness, pressure from wave reflections, measures of left ventricular (LV) energetics and myocardial work.99 Healthy adults participated in this study 84 were selected (42 females, 42 males) to be matched for potential...
