Many studies of the systemic hemodynamics of arterial hypertension have been done, both in the experimental animal and in man, and these have recently been reviewed by Fries.1 The specific data concerning cardiac output in man have been expanded and reviewed recently by Varnauskas2 and by Taylor et al.3 However, there is much less information available concerning coronary blood flow in hypertensive subjects.4 The present study was done to add information concerning both systemic and coronary hemodynamics in subjects with both mild and severe hypertension.
Twenty-one hypertensive subjects were studied by cardiac catheterization. These subjects were not
