Association of arterial stiffness with the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene polymorphism in healthy individuals.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Arterial stiffness is an important determinant of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The I/D polymorphism of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene is associated with cardiovascular disease. However, the relationship between ACE polymorphism, arterial stiffness, and wave reflections in healthy, low-risk population has not been defined yet. METHODS: The study included 282 apparently healthy, low-risk individuals (mean age 39.7 +/- 8.9 years, 178 males). Carotid-femoral puls...
