abstract

  • Hypertensive patients with ECG LV hypertrophy have increased LV wall stresses and stress-mass-heart rate products, suggesting a contribution of high myocardial oxygen demand to increased risk in such patients. Particularly high stresses and triple products were associated with echocardiographic LV hypertrophy, and subnormal LV chamber and midwall function.
