BACKGROUND Essential hypertension is characterized by small artery remodeling and increased systemic vascular resistance (SVR). We hypothesized that changes in SVR index (SVRI) were associated with measures of small artery structure as reflected by minimum coronary and forearm vascular resistance (C-Rmin and F-Rmin, respectively). Also, we investigated how F-Rmin is related to C-Rmin, coronary flow reserve (CFR), left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and blood pressure (BP). METHOD Sixty-six… CONTINUE READING
