Although many theories exist on the subject, the mechanisms responsible for a reduction of hypertensive cardiac hypertrophy in response to antihypertensive therapy are still unclear. In order to investigate the relationship between regression of hypertensive cardiac hypertrophy and cardiac nervous function, we studied ten patients with untreated essential hypertension (six men and four women, 62±12 years old). Both echocardiography and iodine-123 metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) myocardial… CONTINUE READING
