abstract

  • Patients with primary aldosteronism, a state characterized by chronic aldosterone excess, had similar LV geometry and systolic function compared to essential hypertension patients matched for age, gender, and BP. This argues against important independent associations between aldosterone and these aspects of LV response to human hypertension.
