abstract

  • There was a significant reduction in compliance among the hypertensive patients, as estimated by the elastic modulus and the ratio of stroke volume to pulse pressure. However, when the non-linearity of the pressure-volume relationship and the impact of distending pressure were taken into account, by the arterial stiffness index and by the increase in arterial wall thickness associated with hypertension by Young's modulus, there were no significant differences in arterial compliance between the two groups.
