Relationship of Chinese medicine syndrome with endothelium-dependent vasodilatation function and carotid intima-media thickness in patients with hypertensive disease

, : Relationship of Chinese medicine syndrome with endothelium-dependent vasodilatation function and carotid intima-media thickness in patients with hypertensive disease. Zhongguo Zhong Xi Yi Jie He Za Zhi Zhongguo Zhongxiyi Jiehe Zazhi 29(9): 833-835

To explore the relationship of Chinese medicine (CM) syndrome with carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and endothelium-dependent vasodilatation function (EDVF) in patients with hypertensive disease (HD) for providing an objective basis of syndrome differentiation in HD patients. Color Doppler's ultrasound was used to measure the endothelium-dependent flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of brachial artery and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in 60 HD patients (the HD group) and 30 normal controls (the control group). And the relationship of the outcomes with Chinese medicine syndrome types in patients was analyzed statistically. FMD was lower and CIMT was higher in HD patients of all syndrome types than those in the control group respectively (P<0.01). Comparison between patients of different syndrome types showed that FMD was higher in patients of Gan-fire exuberance type and yin-deficiency and yang-hyperaction type than in those of both yin-yang deficiency type and phlegm-dampness stagnancy type (P<0.01, P<0.05), while CIMT in patients of Gan-fire exuberance type was the lowest in all types, and that in yin-deficiency and yang-hyperaction type was lower than in yin-yang deficiency type (P<0.01). CIMT and FMD may be used as a reference index for CM syndrome differentiation in HD patients.
