Multivariate-adjusted odds ratio of top quartile of brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) at baseline based on MetS, number of MetS components, and individual MetS components after adjusting for age, gender, education, smoking status at baseline, time-dependent hypertension medication, and time-dependent mean arterial pressure. The cut-off point of the top quartile of baseline baPWV was 1813 cm/s. MetS, metabolic syndrome; HDL, high-density lipoprotein. * The linear trend of baPWV changes in the number of MetS components in the top quartile was statistically significant.
