Hyperthyroidism whether endogenous or exogenous in origin causes hemodynamic changes which associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. Ambulatory arterial Stiffness index (AASI) is a non invasive way of measuring arterial stiffness. Short term BP variability is derived from 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) recordings. BP variability and AASI are associtaed with increased cardiovascular risk.We aimed to investigate AASI and short t...
