The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) has a high prognostic significance in relation to cardiovascular events frequency. However, its values in the young population is quite vague still. The aim was to assess the identification
of cases of increased vascular aging among young adults in connection with various risk factors (RF) and external signs of connective tissue dysplasia (CTD). In males the 95th percentile at the right and at the left was 7.1 and 7.2,
respectively, and in females 6.8 and 7.0, respectively. The rates of CAVI above 7.0 were 3.3 times more common in men than in women (10.5 % and 3.1 %, respectively). Young people with cardio-ankle index above the 95th percentile
had a vascular age of 40–44 years and traditional risk factors (smoking, weighed heredity) or manifestations of DST. Thus, angiologic screening in the context of mass screening will facilitate early personalized preventive interventions
in young people.
