This study was designed to demonstrate cerebral hemodynamic changes related to hypertension using transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. We measured the flow velocities and the Gosling pulsatility index of the middle cerebral artery and the internal carotid artery in 94 stroke-free, hypertensive patients and 81 age- and gender-matched healthy controls. Compared with the control subjects, patients with a longer duration (> or = 5 years) of hypertension showed significantly lower flow velocities… CONTINUE READING
