Relationship between neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio and epicardial fat tissue thickness in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension



Relationship between neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio and epicardial fat tissue thickness in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension



Journal of International Medical Research 46(3): 940-950



Objective Epicardial fat tissue thickness (EFT) and the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) are associated with atherosclerosis. Few studies have focused on the relationship between these parameters in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension. In this study, we examined the relationship between EFT and the NLR in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension detected by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Methods Eighty consecutive patients without chronic illness who were diagnosed with hypertension according to ABPM results and 80 otherwise healthy subjects were enrolled in the study. EFT of each participant was measured echocardiographically. The C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration and NLR were measured from venous blood samples. Results The 24-hour average systolic blood pressure was significantly higher in the hypertension group than in the control group (143±17 vs. 117±7 mmHg, respectively). There were no significant differences in age, sex, or body mass index between the two groups. EFT, the NLR, and the CRP concentration were significantly higher in the hypertension group than control group. Additionally, a significantly positive correlation between EFT and the NLR was found in both the control group and hypertension group. Conclusion A higher EFT and NLR were detected in patients with newly diagnosed hypertension than in healthy subjects.
