Relationship between left ventricular geometric pattern and systolic and diastolic function in treated Nigerian hypertensives

INTRODUCTION Despite a high worldwide prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy among black patients, the association of a specific left ventricular geometric pattern with left ventricular dysfunction is rare. The aim of this study was to explore the possibility of such an association in Nigerian hypertensives. METHODS This was a retrospective study… (More)
