OBJECTIVE In this study, left atrial appendage (LAA) flow velocities of dipper and nondipper hypertensive patients were compared with normal subjects. METHODS Twenty-three patients with nondipper hypertension (NDH), 25 patients with dipper hypertension (DH), and 25 control subjects with comparable age, gender, and body mass indices were enrolled in the study. A detailed history, physical examination, and routine laboratory tests were obtained on all participants. Standard transthoracic… CONTINUE READING
