Assessment of left ventricular function may be of value in patients with pressure-loaded, hypertrophied left ventricles for the purpose of characterizing such patients as to prognostic risk. To determine whether left ventricular function is in part independent of loading stresses in such patients, and to assess the effects of removal of loading factors, we have reviewed preliminary data in 60 patients with essential hypertension and in 26 patients with aortic stenosis who were studied with… CONTINUE READING
