There remains a role for excessive vasoconstriction in the syndrome of hypertension, however, because systemic vasoconstriction and increased SVR contribute to both systolic and diastolic hypertension (Fig. 6). Overall, increased SBP can be the result of increases in stroke volume, arterial stiffness, or SVR, whereas DBP is decreased when central arterial stiffness increases. DBP thus varies directly with SVR and inversely with central arterial stiffness. The ability of increased SVR to cause increases in either SBP or DBP (depending on the degree of central arterial stiffness) causes otherwise unexpected differences in the therapeutic responses of SBP and DBP to Chapter 3 / Mechanisms of Hypertension 31 Fig.
