OBJECTIVE Arterial stiffening has harmful effects; peripheral pulse wave reflections deleteriously increase central pressure, but on the contrary they could also possibly be protective, as the pulse is transmitted to the microcirculation to a lesser extent. The aim of this study was, therefore, to explore the relationship between wave reflection and small vessel damage in the kidney. METHODS In 216 hypertensive patients, data on renal resistive index, obtained by Doppler ultrasound sampling… CONTINUE READING
