Abstract

Uncontrolled blood pressure could later result to the narrowing of the arteriole wall, which can interfere any organ vascularization. One of the complications of hypertension is retinopathy, which could affect cognitive function. Objectives: This study assesses the correlation between retinopathy and cognitive impairment in hypertensive patients. Method: This was an assosiative study with a cross sectional design which involved subjects who had minimum experience of 5 years chronic hypertension. We used the MoCA-INA, TMT A&B and the Grooved pegboard for cognitive function testing. Retinopathy was assessed by using Heine mini 3000 ophtalmoscope. Result: Memory was the most affected domain of cognitive impairment, with 44 (93,6%) subjects affected. Many subjects had mild retinopathy which were characterized by arteriole-venule narrowing and arteriole-venule nicking. Statistical analysis using the Fisher test did not show any significant correlation between retinopathy and cognitive impairment in hypertension patients. Conclusion: There were no significant correlation between retinopathy with cognitive impairment in hypertensive patients
