Comparison of baPWV among subjects with serum uric acid quartiles by sex, based on ANCOVA with adjustment for age, smoking, SBP, BMI, fasting glucose, HDL-cholesterol, and LDL-cholesterol. The SUA levels were divided into sex-specific quartiles as follows: in men, Q1: 113.1–309.4, Q2: 309.41–351.1, Q3: 351.11–398.7, and Q4: 398.71–719.9 μmol/L; in women, Q1: 119.0–226.1, Q2: 226.1–255.9, Q3: 255.91–291.6, and Q4: 291.61–517.7 μmol/L. *p < 0.05 compared with Q1 of SUA.
