Abstract

Using the left ventricular mass index (LVMI) as a gauge of early cardiovascular disease risk, the study was aimed at examining how this surrogate outcome measure is affected by various risk indicators, including overswinging or CHAT (circadian hyper-amplitude-tension), non-dipping (a deficient blood pressure decline during rest) and MESOR-hypertension. The results from this study fully corroborate earlier findings indicating that CHAT is a disease risk syndrome warranting immediate therapy.
