"Excess pressure is independently related to measures of LV mass and concentric geometry in essential hypertension";
Journal of Hypertension,
According to the reservoir theory, arterial pressure can be decomposed as the sum of reservoir (Pres)and excess (Pexc)pressure. Pres is constant along the entire arterial tree and results in the minimum left verticular (LV)hydraulic work, while excess pressure is linked to the excess work of the heart. However, data about the relationship of Pres and Pexc with cardiac structured features in hypertension are still lacking.
