Systolic hypertension is highest arterial blood pressure of a cardiac cycle occurring immediately after systole of the left ventricle of the heart. Systolic blood pressures normally 100 to 120 mm Hg. Higher systolic blood pressure are found in prehypertension and hypertension.Increased arterial stiffness is the vascular phenotype of systolic hypertension, especially of the large arteries. Elevated systolic blood pressure is even more associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality than diastolic blood pressure.
