Objective : 1. Understanding hypertensive patients with foot arm blood pressure pulse wave velocity (baPWV) relationship . (2) analysis of patients with essential hypertension ankle-brachial pulse wave velocity (baPWV) changes and related factors . Three preliminary study ankle-brachial pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and hypertension TCM syndrome such correlation . MATERIALS AND METHODS : From Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine Affiliated Hospital from May 2009 to May 2011 inpatient population with essential hypertension were randomly selected 650 cases for the study ; separate 590 cases of healthy persons as control group ; application Japan arteriosclerosis Colin VP-1000 was determined by measuring the ankle-brachial pulse wave velocity (baPwV), simultaneous measurement of height, weight , heart rate , blood pressure, triglycerides, total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein , LDL, uric acid other indicators, comparing patients with essential hypertension and healthy people PWV index difference analysis indicators related factors affecting PWV explore PWV with hypertension and cardiovascular disease risk stratification hierarchical relationships. Application of SPSS 17.0 software package for statistical analysis. Results: 1 baPWV essential hypertension group was significantly faster than the control group (P lt; 0.01). baPWV was positively correlated with the grade of hypertension . 2 , age, sex , smoking history , blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes is an independent risk factor affecting baPWV . 3, this study was to explore the baPWV with syndromes such correlation. Between each group syndromes pulse wave velocity values (baPWV) compare results :: yin and yang gt; phlegm dampness gt; anger Kang Sheng = hyperactivity . Conclusion : baPWV with essential hypertension severity was positively correlated with cardiovascular disease as a risk stratification of patients assessed the independent factors , but also on the prevention of cardiovascular disease and an important indicator of prognosis . Meanwhile , baPWV Chinese medicine diagnosis and treatment of hypertension also has important guiding significance.
