Renal resistive index and cardiovascular organ damage in a large population of hypertensive patients


We evaluated the relationship between renal resistive index (RRI) of the intrarenal vasculature and cardiovascular (CV) organ damage such as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), diastolic dysfunction and carotid atherosclerosis in a large sample of hypertensive patients. 566 hypertensive patients underwent echocardiography with conventional Doppler and… (More)
