Left ventricular mass change during treatment and outcome in patients with essential hypertension
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
The LV mass reduction during antihypertensive treatment is associated with reduced rate of complications of essential hypertension. Our data further suggest that development or regression of LV hypertrophy during antihypertensive treatment may be more closely linked to prognosis than are changes in clinic blood pressure.
