This study aimed to evaluate the benefit of brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) as a noninvasive marker of arterial stiffness for the prediction of all-cause and cause-specific mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes. This multicenter prospective observational study analyzed 2308 patients with type 2 diabetes between 2008 and 2018.
