Cardiovascular remodeling is greater in isolated systolic hypertension than in diastolic hypertension in older adults: The Insufficienza Cardiaca negli Anziani Residenti (ICARE) a dicomano study

These findings provide potential pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the associations of ISH and PP with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
