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.
The casual PP and 24 hour mean PP measured by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring negatively correlated with some parameters of systolic or diastolic function which was determined by the nuclide cardiac blood pool imaging. Moreover, the correlation between the 24 hour mean PP and the parameter of cardiac function was more stronger than that of casual PP.
