Effect of Experimental Renal Hypertension on Experimental Thiouracil-Cholesterol Atherosclerosis in Dogs
Experimental renal hypertension accelerated the onset and accentuated the severity of thiouracil-cholesterol atherosclerosis in dogs. Increased blood pressure and other hemodynamic changes appear to be responsible for these effects. Hypertension and sex were without significant effect on serum cholesterol, cholesterol: phospholipid ratio and low density lipoproteins. Sex had no significant effect on the incidence or severity of this experimental atherosclerosis, including coronary involvement.
