Abstract:


Arterial stiffness, central haemodynamics and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) have been associated with increased risk for Cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality. Antihypertensive, antidiabetic and hypolipidaemic drugs may affect these predictors of CV risk. Such associations should be taken into consideration when treating high-risk patients.

Keywords:

Arterial stiffness, central haemodynamics, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cardiovascular risk, antihypertensive, hypolipidaemic drugs, antidiabetic drugs.
