STRUCTURAL-FUNCTIONAL CHANGES OF VASCULAR WALL IN HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS OF THE FAR NORTH

Cover Page

Abstract


The elastic peculiarities of general vessels in hypertensive patients of the Far North were estimated for the first time. It was revealed that the indices of vascular wall resiliency went down at increase of period of a patient's residing in the unfavourable climatic region. Thus, it was stated that climatogeographic factors of the Far North contributed greatly into the deviations in vascular wall resiliency in hypertensives who live in high latitudes.
