ABSTRACT
The article compares ankle pressures and walking distances in patients with treated and untreated hypertension. With regard to known major cardiovascular risk factors patients with untreated hypertension differed from patients with well-treated hypertension only in terms of their increased arm blood pressure. Effective blood pressure treatment seemed to be associated with an improved walking distance. The results can, however, be considered only as suggestive evidence and will be further studied in a controlled trial with different anti-hypertensive medications.
