Left ventricular hypertrophy and geometric remodeling in hypertension: Stimuli, functional consequences and prognostic implications Review uri icon

abstract

  • Increasing evidence has demonstrated the central importance of left ventricular mass and geometry in the pathophysiology and prognosis of hypertension. These measures of preclinical disease can aid clinical decision-making by separating patients into those with a high or a relatively low risk, and hence a need for pharmacological treatment or its intensification, as well as providing useful bioassays for a spectrum of clinical and experimental research.
