INTRODUCTION: Propose of this study is to evaluate whether the aortic resistance measured by Aortic flow propagation velocity (APV) is improved or not by the treatment by comparing pre- and post-treatment APV values in patients with newly diagnosed essential hypertension.
METHODS: 117 patients with hypertension and 100 volunteers of similar age group without hypertension were included in this study. 24-hour Holter blood pressure and APV values before and after the treatment were compared.
RESULTS: There was a statistically significant difference in APV values before the treatment between the patient group (41,07±7,82 cm/sec) and the control group (58,75±5,19 cm/sec) (p<0.001). The statistical difference in APV values between the patient (54,35±8,28) and control groups disappeared after the treatment (p: 0,822) and APV values showed a positive increase.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: In this study, APV values were lower in patients with hypertension compared to healthy individuals during the early periods of diagnosis, and a certain level of improvement was achieved in APV values with the hypertension treatment.
