Normotensive offspring of hypertensive parents: no evidence of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in a cross-sectional study.


Left ventricular filling alterations occur early in the development of systemic hypertension. We tested the hypothesis that alteration of diastolic filling might be present in a normotensive population with increased genetic risk for hypertension in the absence of increased left ventricular mass. In a blinded study we compared 31 lean, normotensive… (More)
