Abstract

The determinants of diastolic dysfunction in patients with systemic hypertension are not completely known. To evaluate the possible role of age, arterial blood pressure, and baroreflex heart rate response impairment in causing diastolic dysfunction, we studied 61 patients (42 male; mean±SD age, 43.9±12 years) with newly recognized and therefore previously untreated systemic hypertension. Diastolic dysfunction was evaluated by means of Doppler echocardiography (and diagnosed as such when the early to atrial peak velocity ratio corrected to heart rate was
