OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to correlate capillary morphology and erythrocyte velocity to blood pressure in mild-to-moderate essential arterial hypertension. DESIGN Ambulatory blood pressure measurement may provide more precise information about a patient's mean blood pressure than office measurements. METHODS Fifteen patients with recently(More)
Peripheral arterial occlusive disease has been described frequently as a disease affecting predominantly men. There is only a few information available concerning peripheral vascular disease in the female. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to examine risk factors in relation to localisation and symptoms of peripheral arterial occlusive disease in(More)
A double-blind, randomized crossover study was performed in 21 patients with essential arterial hypertension. Nitrendipine 20 mg o.d. and lisinopril 20 mg o.d. were given in a randomized order during a period of each 8 weeks. Nitrendipine and lisinopril decreased systolic and mean arterial blood pressure to a similar level without a significant increase in(More)
Twenty patients with intermittent claudication and having an ankle/arm blood pressure ratio less than or equal to 0.75 were randomized to receive ketanserin 40 mg b.i.d. or placebo for three months under double-blind conditions following a six-week run-in period. A placebo was administered for an additional six weeks at the end of the double-blind phase.(More)
The diagnostic value of different parameters derived from the Doppler velocity curve recorded at the ankle was analysed in a population of 432 subjects. To document the presence or absence of obliterative arterial diseases in the lower limbs, systolic blood pressure measurements were made and oscillography before and after exercise was recorded.
