|Description||The interrelationship between baroreflex sensitivity expressed in ms/mmHg (BRS) or in Hz/mmHg (BRSf), carotid wall thickness (IMT), and age was investigated in 25 hypertensives and 23 normotensives. Hypertensive patients had increased IMT and decreased BRS and BRSf, positive correlation between age and IMT and negative correlation between age and BRS and BRSf.|
