OBJECTIVE To detect the existence of a possible relationship between arterial hypertension and adrenergic reactivity to pressure stimuli, and changes in left ventricular diastolic function (LVDF). PATIENTS Fifty-nine young subjects with borderline arterial hypertension and ten sex- and age-matched controls were investigated. After three medical examinations, the subjects were divided into hypertensive and borderline groups on the basis of the blood pressure reading at visit 3. A complete… CONTINUE READING
