BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown that left ventricular geometric adaptation to hypertension is complex. The spectrum of geometric adaptations in a general population and its relationship to systolic and diastolic function has, however, not been investigated. OBJECTIVES AND METHODS This echocardiographic and Doppler study investigated the relationships between left ventricular geometric shape (normal, concentric remodelling, concentric hypertrophy and eccentric hypertrophy) and left… CONTINUE READING
