OBJECTIVE This study was designed to investigate whether the excess aldosterone found in primary aldosteronism (PA) influences left-ventricular systolic function (LVSF), through a positive inotropic effect METHODS M-mode and two-dimensional echocardiography and transmitral Doppler flow velocity measurements were performed in 82 patients: 44 with confirmed PA (23 male; 21 female; aged 51.8+/-13 years) and 38 essential hypertension patients (16 male; 22 female; aged 48.5+/-12 years) matched for… CONTINUE READING
