Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), diagnosed by ECG and echocardiography, is commonly associated with coronary heart disease. Hypertensive patients with LVH and myocardial ischaemia may be at particular risk. The prevalence of ischaemia in hypertensive LVH was addressed in THAMES (Tenormin in Hypertension and Myocardial Ischaemia Epidemiological Survey), which comprised 205 men with hypertension.
