Elevated plasma levels of fibrinogen and activated coagulation pathways are risk factors of cardiovascular disease in the general population. In a cross-sectional study of a case series, we investigated the relationship between fibrinogen and hemostatic markers with target-organ damage (TOD) in patients with arterial hypertension. Prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, fibrinogen, fibrin D-dimer, prothrombin fragment 1+2 (F1+2), and antithrombin III were measured in 352 untreated… CONTINUE READING
