Objectives: This study is aimed to examine the effect of Geopungchunghyul-dan on circumferential strain of carotid artery in outpatients of Kyung Hee University hospital of Korean Medicine. Methods: Retrospective chart review is used from June 2016 to August 2017 for outpatients of Kyung Hee University hospital of Korean Medicine. 14 patients taking Geopungchunghyul-dan over 1 month were speculated. Data of circumferential strain and intima-media thickness was taken from carotid ultrasonography and processed by Wilcoxon signed-rank test. Results: Geopungchunghyul-dan lowered circumferential strain of both carotid arteries after 1 month of administration (p<0.05). Intima-media thickness of both carotid arteries did not changed significantly. Conclusions: Geopungchunghyul-dan may ameliorate arterial stiffness.
