Hypertension, hypercoagulability and the metabolic syndrome: A cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular disease

Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the main causes of mortality in the world representing around 30% of all deaths. It constitutes also an important factor in morbidity and incapacity. There are several related CVD risk factors such as hypertension, metabolic syndrome (MetS) and hypercoagulability. The exact mechanisms that underlie the relation between those factors and CVD are not sufficiently known yet; pathogenic explanations are lacking also for the mechanisms relating metabolic factors to insulin resistance (IR) and the association with the development of atherosclerosis and thrombosis. The possible links between hypertension, hemostasis alterations and MetS are examined in this report.
