The aim of this article is to briefly review available data regarding changes in the structure of microvessels observed in patients with diabetes mellitus, and possible correction by effective treatment. The development of structural changes in the systemic vasculature is the end result of established hypertension. In essential hypertension, small arteries(More)
BACKGROUND Inadequate blood pressure control and poor adherence to treatment remain among the major limitations in the management of hypertensive patients, particularly of those at high risk of cardiovascular events. Preliminary evidence suggests that home blood pressure telemonitoring (HBPT) might help increasing the chance of achieving blood pressure(More)
It is accepted that, regardless of the mechanisms that initiate the rise of blood pressure, the development of structural changes in the heart and in the systemic vasculature is the end result of established hypertension. The heart, the arterial vessels , the brain, the kidney and the retinal vasculature are the major target organs adversely affected by(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to prospectively investigate whether the structure of cerebral small-resistance arteries is related to cerebral perfusion parameters as measured with dynamic susceptibility-weighted contrast magnetic resonance imaging (DSC-MRI) in a selected cohort of hypertensive and normotensive patients. METHODS Ten hypertensive(More)
