BACKGROUND Hypertension is associated with left ventricular diastolic function abnormalities. There have been few studies evaluating left ventricular diastolic function in an African populace. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-eight hypertensives (52 females, 46 males) and 99 normal controls (49 females, 50 males) were recruited for echocardiography. M-mode measurements and Doppler measurements of Mitral inflow and pulmonary venous flow were taken. RESULTS The hypertensives had significantly… CONTINUE READING
