To study left ventricular (LV) geometry in secondary hypertension and its evolution following etiologic treatment, echocardiography was performed in a total of 73 patients: 40 patients with renovascular hypertension (RVH), 21 with aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA), and 12 with pheochromocytoma (PH). Repeat echocardiography was possible in 43 of these patients, 3-24 months following curative renal revascularization or adrenal surgery. Age, sex ratio, and initial drug treatment score were… CONTINUE READING
