VAMSI, Varahabhatla et al. ARE PULSE WAVE VELOCITY AND ARTERIAL STIFFNESS MARKERS FOR EARLY PRE-CLINICAL ATHEROSCLEROSIS DETECTION IN RESISTANT HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS?. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.1, pp. 32-37. ISSN 2077-3323.

Introduction: Pulse wave velocity and arterial stiffness are considered a gold standard for evaluating target organ damage that has arisen subclinically. Endothelial dysfunction is directly proportional to the development of preclinical atherosclerosis. These surrogate markers mentioned above are relatively higher in patients with uncontrolled or resistant hypertension. The objective was to assess whether arterial stiffness and pulse wave velocity are also surrogate markers for the development of preclinical atherosclerosis in patients with resistant hypertension. Methods and materials: A total of 160 patients with resistant hypertension from Croatia and India were included in the study. Central blood pressure and other clinical values were evaluated using a non-invasive device. Results: The statistics of the group were made with gender perspective, the values of the systolic blood pressure (PA-S), the diastolic blood pressure (PA-D), the mean arterial pressure (MAP), the central systolic pressure (PC-S), central diastolic pressure (PC-D), central pulse pressure (cPP) and pulse wave velocity (VOP) have been described.The PA-S values in men / women were 147.26 ± 22.12 / 144.10 ± 21.29; PA-D values in men / women were 94.98 ± 13.36/88.57 ± 12.25 respectively. Conclusions: with the results obtained, it can be concluded that arterial stiffness is an independent marker that is directly proportional to endothelial dysfunction and the development of preclinical atherosclerosis.
