In brief: Vascular health....
Generally seen with hardening of arteries, a wide pulse pressure is an insight into disease of the vascular system.
It is associated with an increase in risk of heart attack and stroke. Lowering the systolic bp, statins, aspirin, diabetes control, smoking cessation, healthy diet and exercise all play a part in decreasing the risk.
