BACKGROUND We hypothesized that the alterations of myocardial collagen turnover in patients with hypertension may be involved in the early changes of regional contractile function assessed by a new speckle tracking method. METHODS In 56 patients with untreated hypertension (48 +/- 11 years, ejection fraction > 55%) and 20 age-matched control subjects, the serum levels of aminoterminal propeptide of procollagen I/III and tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 were measured by… CONTINUE READING
