Renin profile in patients with untreated hypertension and its association with arterial stiffness parameters

Cover Page

Abstract


The aim of the study was to evaluate relationship between patient characteristics and arterial stiffness assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity with plasma renin activity. 83 patients with untreated hypertension were examined. Patients with volume-mediated hypertension compared with patients with renin-mediated hypertension were older, had higher level of blood pressure and higher arterial stiffness.
