AbstractBetter understanding and early recognition of hypertrophy in hypertensive patient helps with effective treatment and prevention of cardiovascular events and morbidity.
It has been established that anti-hypertensive therapy may diminish LVH and hence lessen the risk of serious cardiovascular events in individuals with hypertension. Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an adaptation of the heart, specifically the left ventricle, to increasing ventricular stress.
Subjects with borderline isolated systolic hypertension in the Framingham Heart study also had modestly elevated left ventricular (LV) layer thickness.1 It's widely recognized that left ventricular hypertrophy is linked to high blood pressure and the cardiovascular complications that come with it..
