Various diagnostic methods have been used to evaluate hypertensive patients under physical and pharmacological stress. Several studies have shown that exercise hypertension has an independent, adverse impact on outcome; however, other prognostic studies have shown that exercise hypertension is a favorable prognostic indicator and associated with good(More)
BACKGROUND It has been shown by various diagnostic methodologies that angiotensin receptor blockage reduces left ventricular mass, improves diastolic function and increases contractility in hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). We planned to detect the effect of angiotensin receptor blockage on midwall mechanics and myocardial dynamics in(More)
Vasodilator-induced transient left ventricular (LV) cavity dilation by positron emission tomography (PET) is common in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC). Because most patients with PET-LV cavity dilation lack obstructive epicardial coronary artery disease, we hypothesized that vasodilator-induced subendocardial hypoperfusion resulting from(More)
BACKGROUND Quantitative imaging analyses showed an earlier septal wall involvement in hypertension. We planned to determine the effect of hypertension on regional myocardial performance index (MPI) in a hypertensive patient population. METHODS We evaluated 119 hypertensive patients who were divided into gr. I: 57 patients without left ventricular(More)
