OBJECTIVE To investigate the impact of intensified cardiovascular risk management on soluble markers of platelet, endothelial and rheological function in a population of middle-aged hypertensive patients at high risk of cardiovascular complications. DESIGN Prospective follow-up study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 159 hypertensive patients [138 male… CONTINUE READING
