OBJECTIVES Prehypertension is a predictor for the future development of hypertension and represents an increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Prolonged intra/interatrial conduction times demonstrated by P wave dispersion (PD) and tissue Doppler echocardiography (TDE) are related to the development of atrial fibrillation. The aim of this study was to evaluate atrial conduction time by PD and TDE in patients with prehypertension. STUDY DESIGN In 46 prehypertensive patients… CONTINUE READING
