BACKGROUND In young ADPKD patients, we have previously found an impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation in small resistance vessels but a normal flow-mediated dilatation of the brachial artery. The present study investigated arterial stiffness in early ADPKD by pulse-wave analysis (PWA) and measurement of pulse-wave velocity (PWV). METHODS 18 young normotensive ADPKD patients with normal renal function and 18 controls were studied by applanation tonometry with the SphygmoCor equipment… CONTINUE READING
