Given the increase in CV morbidity after RTx and the scarcity of CV events in pediatrics, surrogate markers should be assessed to characterize CV damage in this population. AASI is a marker of arterial stiffness in adults, predicting cardio‐and cerebrovascular morbidity. Our aim was to assess the determinants of AASI in RTx children (n= 54, 15.5±3.5 yr) and to examine its relationship to central PWV. AASI was calculated from 24 h ABPM. PWV was determined by applanation tonometry, body composition by multifrequency bioimpedance …
