A gender-specific multivariate model with age and BSA; developed using a large cohort of children and adults, ranging from 1 to 85 years.
We demonstrate that age, body size, and gender are strong independent predictors of proximal aortic diameters.
(Note that vessel diameters are measured in diastole.)
Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
- age range: (1 - 85)
Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
