OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to assess the prognostic value of changes in left ventricular hypertrophy in hypertensive patients with time. DESIGN Two hundred and fifteen uncomplicated hypertensive patients underwent a high-quality baseline echocardiogram for left ventricular anatomy evaluation and in 151 of those patients the echocardiographic examination was repeated 10 +/- 1.4 years after the initial study. METHODS Left ventricular mass index changes were evaluated, in… CONTINUE READING
