     Abstract Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is an increasing epidemiologic challenge and a cluster of cardiovascular risk. MetS is a major health problem with high prevalence in Thailand. Increased arterial stiffness is a cardiovascular outcome of MetS. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a good marker for evaluating arterial stiffness. The purpose of this study was to assess the arterial stiffness by measuring PWV in Thai subjects with MetS. A total of 208 subjects, aged 35-75 years, 135 with and 73 without MetS according to IDF and NCEP-ATPIII criteria were included in this study. Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and aortic ankle pulse wave velocity (aaPWV) were measured. Routine anthropometric and serologic data were collected. The baPWV and aaPWV were significantly increased in MetS subjects when compared with non MetS (p<0.01). Both of PWVs were associated with age, systolic blood pressure and waist circumference (p<0.05). PWV, especially aaPWV increased progressively with increasing number of MetS risk factors (r = 0.202, p<0.01). Results in this study suggest that MetS risk factors are strongly associated with increased arterial stiffness in a Thai population with MetS.
