VA Coupling and Contractility According to Group and Geometry
(A)Ees was elevated in HFpEF (red)and hypertensive patients (blue)compared with control patients (black)for each pattern of geometry. In contrast, PRSW (B), sc-eFS (C), and sc-mFS (D)were each consistently depressed in HFpEF and increased in hypertensive patients compared with control patients. See text for discussion. Data are mean ± standard error. *Geometry p < 0.0001; †group p < 0.0001. CH = concentric hypertrophy; CR = concentric remodeling; EH = eccentric hypertrophy; other abbreviations as in Figure 1.
