Abstract

Nine of 34 primary hypertensive men with an electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern of left ventricular hypertrophy showed normalization of the repolarization phase following antihypertensive therapy. A study of the left ventricular load both before therapy, and coincident with the reversion to normal repolarization after treatment, was thought to be a useful means for insight into the mechanisms responsible for the ST T alterations in hypertension. There was no significant difference in the pretreatment values of arterial pressure, heart rate, peripheral resistance, left ventricular work, pressure time per beat, and tension time index between those patients who showed ECG improvement and those who did not. Following therapy, the only significant difference (p
