We investigated the effects on the heart of hypertension due to the excess of aldosterone and suppression of the renin-angiotensin system caused by primary aldosteronism with M-mode echocardiography and transmitral Doppler flow velocity measurements. We studied 34 consecutive patients with primary aldosteronism and 34 with essential hypertension individually matched for age, gender, race, body mass index, blood pressure values, and duration of hypertension. The groups were similar in age, body… CONTINUE READING
