Effects of Essential Hypertension on coronary Microcirculation: Focus on a Population of Hypertensives Affected by Microvascular Angina

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

A correlation between essential hypertension and the establishmentof myocardial ischemia is nowadays universally accepted. Coronary atherosclerosis is deemed to be the most important process through which the capability of coronary district to supply a blood flow consistent with myocardial needs can be impaired, until the onset of an anginal syndrome. In this study, we verified whether hypertensives’ coronaries,seen by performing an angiographic study, are properly definable as normal, even in presence of an overt exertional angina, or if they shouldrather be barely defined as “macroscopically unharmed”, through the clues of a microvascular alteration
