Collagen metabolism in the extracellular matrix (ECM) is related to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular stiffness and remodeling in hypertension. We evaluated the association between collagen metabolism markers and the newly developed parameter, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), in older hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). We performed echocardiography and baPWV measurement using a new device, form PWV/ABI (Colin Medical Technology, Komaki, Japan), and… CONTINUE READING
