Özet

Objective: Depression and anxiety are associated with both subdinical and clinical cardiovascular disease. Endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerosis, and inflammation are some of the underlying mechanisms. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and augmentation index (Alx) are noninvasive markers for evaluation of arterial stiffness. The aim of this study was to examine the association between arterial stiffness parameters and depression/anxiety scores in depressive patients undergoing psychiatric treatment.
