Abstract

Background - It is still unclear whether substantial regression of hypertensive left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and normalization of chamber geometry are associated with improved left ventricular (LV) myocardial function. Methods and Results - Midwall mechanics were evaluated in 152 patients undergoing 1 year of effective antihypertensive treatment. Two-dimensionally directed M-mode echocardiography was performed as follows: (1) after a 4-week placebo "run-in" period, (2) after 1 year of treatment with 20 mg/d lisinopril (alone or associated with 12.5 to 25 mg/d hydrochlorothiazide), and (3) after a final 1-month placebo period to allow blood pressure (24-hour average ambulatory monitoring) to return to pretreatment levels. Treatment-induced reductions in blood pressure (from 149±16/95±11 to 131±12/83±10 mm Hg, P2, P±0.05) were associated with a marked reduction in LV mass index (from 159±30 to 133±26 g/m2, P
