CONTEXT Acromegaly increases cardiovascular morbidity. We tested the hypothesis that increased arterial stiffness together with left ventricular hypertrophy may be a contributory factor. PATIENTS AND DESIGN Fifty-six patients (40 males, 54 ± 13 yr; 25 active disease, 31 in remission) and 46 healthy controls (30 males, 52 ± 13 yr) underwent measurements of aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV), carotid Doppler (IMT), echocardiography, and cardiovascular risk factors. RESULTS Mean serum IGF-I was… CONTINUE READING
