Although the exact biomechanical mechanisms remain to be identified, authors agree that these peaks of aortic events relate to the well-­known peaks of blood pressure. Thus these findings underpin the importance of classical recommendations to control blood pressure and to avoid activities such as weight lifting, that are associated with predictably unacceptable increases of blood pressure [118]. Another important approach to make use of insights form vascular biomechanics is to measure aortic wall properties.
