Hemodynamics in Labile Hypertension
A Follow-Up Study
A preliminary follow-up study has been carried out in 68 labile hypertensive patients followed for an average of 50.4 months. The high cardiac output pattern found initially tended to revert toward a normal cardiac output and higher total peripheral resistance. This suggests that the high cardiac output pattern is an early hemodynamic abnormality. No difference between those groups could be shown on the basis of complications at the time of this study.
