Venous responses to salt loading in hypertensive subjects
It has been previously suggested that salt loading produces structural changes of the arteries in hypertensive patients who respond to salt loading with a greater rise of blood pressure. This study examined the possibility that salt loading alters venous distensibility in hypertensive patients. Twenty-one patients with essential hypertension were placed on a low-sodium diet (70 meq) for 7 days and then were placed on a high-sodium diet (345 meq) for 7 days. Patients were arbitrarily divideddoi:10.1161/01.cir.69.1.50 pmid:6689646 fatcat:egsrj3rhyfeezainhtd5ovoroi
