OBJECTIVE To evaluate relations between coronary flow velocity and myocardial oxygen demand at rest, as well as coronary vasodilator capacity and flow reserve, in asymptomatic subjects with borderline hypertension as compared to normotensive controls and patients with sustained high blood pressure (HBP) and without left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Forty-two asymptomatic males were studied: 13 healthy normotensive volunteers; 12 subjects with borderline HBP and 17… CONTINUE READING
