AIMS This study analyses right ventricular longitudinal function in arterial systemic hypertension by pulsed tissue Doppler. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty normotensives and 30 hypertensives, free of cardiac drugs, underwent standard Doppler echocardiography and pulsed tissue Doppler of right ventricular lateral tricuspid annulus and left ventricular lateral mitral annulus. By tissue Doppler, systolic and diastolic measurements were obtained. Hypertensives had higher left ventricular mass and… CONTINUE READING
