Impact of diastolic Doppler indices on exercise capacity in hypertensive patients with electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy (a LIFE substudy)
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
Diastolic LV performance significantly influences exercise capacity in hypertensive patients with LV hypertrophy. Impaired exercise capacity is more strongly associated with blunted reduction in IVRT during exercise than with lower E/A ratio at rest.
