Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a coexistence of metabolic risk factors affecting development of cardiovascular diseases. The SCORE system estimates fatal cardiovascular disease events over a ten-year period.
The aim of the study
was to estimate cardiovascular risk in patients with symptoms of MS.
Material and methods
. The study included 268 patients with symptoms of MS according to International Diabetes Federation criteria (2005), 136 men and 132 women, mean age 59,62±9,21 years. The cardiovascular risk was estimated on based of pulse pressure and SCORE table in these patients.
. In subjects with MS the mean value of pulse pressure (pp) was 58,96±2,34 mmHg, increased values of pp was found in 33,21% subjects with MS. High and very high cardiovascular death risk occurred in 80,97% subjects with MS, significantly more often in men than women.
. In majority of patients with MS high cardiovascular risk was found. In every three subjects with MS high pulse pressure was stated.

Key words: metabolic syndrome, SCORE, pulse pressure
