Hypertensive patients with left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy have a higher incidence of cardiovascular events than those without it. We hypothesized that a close relation exists between clinical evidence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and alterations in LV structure and function that contribute to their higher risk. Echocardiograms were recorded in 963 hypertensive patients (mean age 66 +/- 7 years, 41% women) with electrocardiographic LV hypertrophy, and divided into 149 with and 814 without… CONTINUE READING
