Arterial hypertension (AH) in the Russian Federation, as well as in all countries with advanced economy, is one of the burning medico-social problems. A considerable increase of AH patient census among non-adults frightens, while the diagnostics of the arterial tension (AT) increase in young people and the level of AH early stages detection stay unsatisfactory. From this perspective the most applicable methods are the ones of functional diagnostics, which allow detecting the states on the edge of the norm and pathology, early and super early changes on the part of the blood circulatory system for the purpose of probable cardiovascular diseases prognostication. To the advanced noninvasive methods of haemodynamics diagnostics the polyrheocardiography method integrating the research of central haemodinamics according to Kubichek and rheography of the pulmonary artery and aorta is referred.

The purpose of the present study was in the evaluation of haemodinamic changes of the systemic and pulmonary circulations in arterial hypertension early stages in young men by the computer polyrheocardiography method.

For the investigation of the systemic and pulmonary circulations haemodinamics state 38 men aged from 18 to 50 (the average age 35,1 ± 3,2) were examined. At the AH classification the Russian recommendations worked out by the Committee of Experts of the All-Russia Scientific Society of Cardiologists in 2004 were used. The first group consisted of 12 men with high normal AT, the second one - 13 patients with the AH of the first stage, and the control group made 13 practically healthy men matching in age. Coronary heart disease, backward heart failure, secondary hypertension and endocrinopathy patients were excluded from the examination.

For the purpose of the systemic and pulmonary circulations haemodynamics state determining the method of polyrheocardiography was used with the help of the"Rheo-Spectrum" multifunctional computer rheograph of the Russian firm "NeuroSoft". The statistical treatment of the materials was carried out by methods of descriptive statistics using the application program package "Statistica 6.0" and nonparametric techniques of valuation.

As a result of the carried out central haemodynamics investigation in both study groups the increase of the average haemodinamic pressure of different manifestation degree against normosistolia has been detected: at the high normal AT - by 9% and at the AH of the first stage - by 15% compared to the control group. In all patients including the control group the hypokinetic type of central haemodynamics was detected. The central haemodinamics state peculiarity in AH patients became the increase of vascular resistance: in the first group the total peripheral resistance (TPR) is increased by 39% and in the second group - by 7% compared to the control group, that testifies to the increase of the left ventricle afterload in the early AH stages. The cardiac output decrease in AH patients compared to the control group didn´t exceed 2%. With the AT degree increase in the study groups the left ventricle preload decreased as evidenced by the left ventricle end diastolic pressure decrease. The TPR increase leads to the left ventricle contractive activity increase: in the group with high normal AT the Blumberger´s coefficient was increased by 40% and at the first stage AH - by 81%. The detected changes of the systemic blood flow in the pulmonary circulation in the second group patients were characterized by hypertonia of small and medium arteriae, hypotonia of veins and they were manifested with the increase of slow blood filling time by 7% and the decrease of the rheographic diastolic index by 21% compared to the control group. The pulmonary hypertension has been detected in both groups of study, but the most frank it is in the patients with high normal AT.

Thus, early haemodynamic changes in both blood circulations have been detected by the polyrheocardiography method in young men in early stages of AH. The pulmonary hypertension progression preceding the left ventricle failure development is registered; diastolic dysfunction forthcoming against this background is the following reason for tension rise within the pulmonary artery system on account of the bulk factor including and vascular pulmonary resistance intensity.
