Abstract: Baroreceptor reflex sensitivity (BRS) is an important factor in the homeostatic regulation of the cardiovascular system. Arterial stiffening also provides direct evidence of target organ damage in hypertensive patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate a possible association between BRS and pulse wave velocity (PWV) in a population of normotensive and hypertensive patients.
