The relationship between cerebral artery stiffness (CAS) and cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is unclear. A new method was constructed to evaluate the stiffness of cerebral artery directly by carotid-cerebral pulse wave velocity (ccPWV), and a single-center and prospective clinical trial was designed. The results show that ccPWV is independently associated with cerebral large artery atherosclerosis and has a good diagnostic value in the early stages. The value of ccPWV is also related to the initial severity and prognosis of acute ischemic stroke. This short commentary reviews the relationship between CAS and CVD based on the previous studies.
