Table 2 Retinal parameters after multivariate adjustment for model 1–3

From: Retinal capillary rarefaction in patients with untreated mild-moderate hypertension

Retinal parameters   
  Short time Hypertensive Long time Hypertensive Healthy control subjects p-value model 1 p-value model 2 p-value model 3
ICD (μm) 22.2 ± 5.2 24.2 ± 6.3 20.1 ± 4.2 p = 0.011 p = 0.008 p = 0.035
CapA (−) 1643 ± 602 1462 ± 690 1821 ± 651 p = 0.001 p = 0.001 p = 0.010
RCF (AU) 299 ± 72 282 ± 70 314 ± 60 p = 0.010 p = 0.009 p = 0.071
  1. Data are given as mean ± SD, ICD intercapillary distance, CapA capillary area, RCF retinal capillary flow, adjusted p-value: total hypertensive group versus healthy subjects
  2. The data for the healthy control subjects have been previously described by our study group [21]
  3. Model 1 includes: gender, BMI, systolic office BP, serum-creatinine and HDL-cholesterol
  4. Model 2 includes: gender, BMI, systolic office BP, serum-creatinine and HDL-cholesterol, age, LDL- cholesterol and ex-smoking habit
  5. Model 3 includes: gender, BMI, serum creatinine, HDL-cholesterol, systolic 24 h ambulatory BP
