Abstract

The isolated systolic hypertension is a distinct entity concerning evolving,
pathological, diagnosis and treatment particularities. The present study analyzed the behavior of
the blood pressure by continuous ambulatory monitoring of a group of patients diagnosed with
isolated systolic hypertension by office measurement. Material and method: One hundred
and twenty nine patients with isolated systolic hypertension at office were included. They were
subjected to continuous ambulatory monitoring of blood pressure, then the treatment was
started. After six months the patients were reassessed. Results: Continuous ambulatory
monitoring better indicates the increase of systolic tension and the reduction of the diastolic
tension by aging. The pulse pressure is significantly higher at the over sixty-five group. The
systolic tension is directly correlated with the pulse pressure and indirectly with the diurnal
index. (r = 0.36). After six months of treatment the reevaluation shows a statistically
significant reduction of the pathological parameters although without achieving tensional control.
Conclusions: The ambulatory monitoring better highlights the values of hypertension and
assesses the LOAD and Day Index values. Achieving the therapeutic goal regarding systolic
hypertension proves difficult.
