Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular complications independently of other known risk factors, but so far the predictive value of its evolution under treatment has been studied relatively little. Since 1983 we have followed up a cohort of initially untreated hypertensive patients with echocardiographic measurements of left ventricular mass (LVM). We analyzed the data on 474 patients with more than 5 years of follow-up to assess the prognostic… CONTINUE READING
