However, increasing aortic diameter with advancing age may also be viewed as a maladaptive attempt by the aorta to limit the age-related increase in aortic impedance that would otherwise accompany age-related stiffening of the aortic wall. Age-related arterial dilation tends to reduce (not increase) arterial impedance, thereby reducing systolic BP and PP [39]. The idea that systolic hypertension can be caused by a disproportionately small aortic diameter runs counter to older thinking and has been attacked on the basis of studies showing increased PWV, elastic modulus, and aortic wall thickness in convenience samples of older people [40–42].

The determinant of wide pulse pressure is increased aortic impedance, either due to a smaller aortic diameter or increased effective wall stiffness. At older ages, high aortic impedance is usually associated with wide pulse pressure due to increased aortic stiffness, which acts to reduce diastolic BP even when SVR is moderately elevated (see text). consequence of longstanding diastolic hypertension, as once thought. Systolic hypertension arises de novo at any age, and often preceding diastolic hypertension [6].
