Abstract

Our aim was to compare left ventricular (LV) deformation in subjects with masked hypertension (MH) to normotensive and sustained hypertensive patients. This cross-sectional study included 185 untreated subjects who underwent 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring and complete two-dimensional echocardiographic (2DE) examination including multilayer strain analysis. MH was diagnosed if clinic BP was normal (
