The onset of cardiovascular events presents a circadian variation that may be mediated by similar temporal patterns of vascular function. Blood pressure also follows circadian variation. We investigated the possible diurnal variation of endothelial function and arterial stiffness in patients with hypertension. Thirty-five individuals with recently diagnosed hypertension (mean age 48.3 years, range 30–60 years, 14 men) were examined. Flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD), nitrate-mediated… CONTINUE READING
