Contribution of abnormal arterial function to cardiac syndrome X: a study of pressure waveform analysis and exercise haemodynamics

Abstract

Increased central systolic loading may contribute to ischaemic symptoms in cardiac syndrome X (CSX). Resting and exercise-induced central pressure waveforms were recorded in 20 CSX patients and 20 controls. Patients with CSX had significantly higher wave reflection and reduced pulse pressure amplification, which may help to explain symptoms in CSX. The… (More)
