Left ventricular hypertrophy is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. We evaluated the effect of long-term and strict antihypertensive therapy with and without the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) imidapril on left ventricular hypertrophy using a novel indicator of chronic burden on the left ventricle, the area under the blood… CONTINUE READING
