Methodology: One hundred seventy two elderly patients with isolated systolic hypertension were enrolled to determine mean pulse pressure by monitoring 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and to analyze the cardiac function by nuclide cardiac blood pool imaging.
We designed this study to monitor ambulatory blood pressure in the elderly with isolated systolic hypertension and measured left ventricular systolic and diastolic function by nuclide cardiac blood pool imaging to analyze the relationship between 24-hours mean pulse pressure and cardiac function.
Tracing with 99mTc-RBC, the left ventricular gating nuclide cardiac blood pool imaging was obtained by gating electrocircuit which is triggered by R wave of ECG, 16 frames were shot in each R-R interval.
