To determine the relations of 24-hour blood pressure (BP) and its different phases with left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling, 125 subjects (mean age 46 years) not taking cardiac drugs were studied by Doppler echocardiography and ambulatory BP recording. Subjects (excluding those with coronary artery or valvular heart disease, heart failure, or diabetes) were classified into 2 groups according to the level of Doppler-derived ratio of peak early to atrial velocity (E/A ratio): 59 had E/A >1… CONTINUE READING
