Abstract

Background: Hypertension is one of the principal risk factors for cardiovascular disease. We aimed to evaluate the impact of hypertension on fibrinolytic balance and endothelial function by measuring plasma levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), tissue plasminogen activator antigen (tPA), tPA/PAI-1 complex and fibrinogen.
