The deterioration in arterial and cardiac function with aging impairs arterial ventricular coupling, an important determinant of cardiovascular performance. However, exercise training improves arterial ventricular coupling especially during exercise. This review examines the concept of arterial-ventricular coupling and how age and disease uncouples, but exercise training recouples, the heart and arterial system.
