When acute myocardial infarction occurs in patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), the incidence of sudden cardiac death increases markedly. Possible explanations include increased size of the occluded vascular bed secondary to more extensive atherosclerotic coronary vascular disease in the presence of hypertension, decreased coronary reserve secondary to LVH, and intrinsic electrophysiologic abnormalities in hypertrophied cardiac muscle. To explore these… CONTINUE READING
