Isolated T-wave abnormalities and evaluation of left ventricular wall motion after nifedipine for severe hypertension.

Rapid reduction of blood pressure by vasodilators in severe hypertensives has been associated with T-wave inversion. The significance of these changes in the absence of chest pain or other manifestations of ischemia is not known. To determine if these T-wave inversions are due to myocardial ischemia, we obtained electrocardiograms and left ventricular wall… (More)
