Background: Aortic dissection causes excess mortality in Turner syndrome, and this increased risk is associated with aortic dilation, congenital cardiovascular abnormalities, karyotype, and blood pressure.

Study objective: To study blood pressure (BP) levels and aortic dimensions in women with Turner syndrome (TS).Materials and methods: 102 women with TS (mean age 37.7 years; 18–62 years). 24 hour ambulatory BP measurement and echocardiography was performed on participants.Results: Mean BP systolic (sys) and diastolic (dia) values were (±SD): sysBPday 128.0±15.3; diaBPday 81.6±11.8; sysBPnight 110.4...
