It is now established that regression of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) occurs following reduction of arterial pressure in patients with hypertension. A number of factors contribute towards this regression, including the fall in blood pressure itself, the drug therapy given, and the pre-existing degree of hypertrophy. LVH is in some senses a beneficial adaptive response in terms of systolic function, and therefore it is important to clarify whether or not regression of hypertrophy is… CONTINUE READING
