INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine if anisotropic action potential conduction was altered during development of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). METHODS AND RESULTS Isolated guinea pig left ventricular preparations from hearts that had developed LVH were used to measure conduction velocity in longitudinal and transverse orientations to(More)

Left ventricular hypertrophy is a major risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, calcium antagonists, and beta-blockers prevent, and cause regression of, left ventricular hypertrophy after short-term therapy. The ability of diuretics to do the same is unclear. We have performed a meta-analysis of(More)
