We revue the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in the elderly, their relationship to arterial stiffness. The measurement of arterial stiffness is of considerable increasing interest in this early 21 century. This paper is focusing on modeling, in different measurement methods. Several measurement techniques are presented. A review of the bibliography that explain the link between cardiovascular risk factors and arterial stiffness is summarized, as are the relationships between the various risk factors and arterial stiffness. The current role of these measurement methods seems to be time consuming although the European consensus recommends the measure once a year in the management of vascular patients. New techniques for the assessment of the arterial stiffness, more reproducible and easy to use, could ultimately trivialize this measurement, contributing in medical practice to the assessment and the management of the vascular risk.
