Abstract

To investigate the effects of left ventricular (LV) mass and geometry in hypertensive patients >50 years of age, 540 men and women were divided into controlled, uncontrolled, and untreated groups. The high prevalence of concentric LV hypertrophy in postmenopausal women, despite medical therapy, emerged as potentially important and underrecognized factor of their cardiovascular risk.
