Correlates of myocardial oxygen demand measured by positron emission tomography in the hypertrophied left ventricle.


BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify the best correlate of myocardial oxygen demand (MVO(2)) in patients with hypertension induced left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), and to examine whether relationships between these surrogates and MVO(2) differed between patients with LVH and control subjects. METHODS We measured MVO(2) by positron emission… (More)
