The presence of diabetes mellitus and other risk factors of atherosclerosis, such as obesity, smoking and hyperlipidemia, in hypertensive patients makes the prognosis worse. Authors compared the clinical findings in diabetic hypertensive patients with and without left ventricular hypertrophy, the presence of which was diagnosed and defined by(More)
Left ventricular hypertrophy LVH is supposed to be a useful marker of cardiovascular complications during the course of hypertension. Occurrence of other risk factors of atherosclerosis in these hypertensive patients such as hyperlipidemia and smoking deteriorate the prognosis too. The authors compared clinical findings in hypertensive patients with and(More)
Left ventricular hypertrophy is an important risk factor of cardiovascular complications during the course of hypertension. Increased QT dispersion is associated with sudden cardiac death in congestive heart failure and in other cardiovascular diseases. Our aim was to compare QT dispersion from routine ECG in hypertensive patients with and without left(More)
Pathogenesis of the atherosclerotic process is deemed as multifactorial. To the most important risk factors, besides certain family predisposition, there belongs hypercholesterolemia, arterial hypertension, obesity, diabetes mellitus, smoking and others. In the last years there are more and more data about the role of inflammation and infection in the whole(More)
The left ventricular hypertrophy is a risk marker of the cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in hypertensive patients--it contributes to sudden death, myocardial infarction, myocardial ischemia, heart failure, arrhythmias, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, stroke and renal failure. The mechanisms by which the heart hypertrophy increases the risk of(More)
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is supposed to be a useful marker of cardiovascular complications during the course of hypertension. Authors compared the presence of heart failure, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and chronic atrial fibrillation in hypertensive patients with and without left ventricular hypertrophy defined by echocardiography.(More)
