Acute and chronic ventricular-arterial coupling in systole and diastole: insights from an elderly hypertensive model.


Aging and hypertension lead to arterial remodeling and tandem increases in arterial (Ea) and ventricular (LV) systolic stiffness (ventricular-arterial [VA] coupling). Age and hypertension also predispose to heart failure with normal ejection fraction (HFnlEF), where symptoms during hypertensive urgencies or exercise are common. We hypothesized that: (1… (More)
