  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Measurements of the central arterial pre-ssure of the retina (CAP) were undertaken to find its possible correlation with the sys-temic blood pressure and the ECG status.

1) The mean value of blood pressure and the systolic CAP level was slightly higher in cases with coronary sclerosis than in those without. The blood pressure and CAP did not surpass 150 mmHg and 85mmHg respectively.

2) In cases with abnormal ECG findings, only the retinopathics with ventricular hy-pertrophy showed diastolic CAP value of over 48.3-45 mmHg, while cases with normalECG findings did not, due to the influence by systemic hypertension in the former.
