Abstract Manifestation of cardiovascular disease (CVD) occurs with clear sex differences. Carotid stiffness (CS) parameters are increasingly used for CVD risk assessment but the sex-specific association with CVD risk factors as well as association patterns between CS parameters are largely unknown, which we investigated in SAPALDIA population-based cohort participants.
