Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypertensive patients have strong evidence of endothelial dysfunction. We aimed to explore the relationships between cardiovascular risk factors and arterial stiffness parameters in hypertensive patients. The study population included 109 hypertensive patients (63 females, 46 males). Arterial stiffness measures including pulse wave velocity, augmentation index, and central aortic pressure were applied. Augmentation index and central aortic pressure were found to be significantly higher (P < .001 and P = .03, respectively) in women. The higher augmentation index and central aortic pressure values were observed in women than in men. These data offer new evidences for the role of sex hormones in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in women.
