Abstract

Of 17 patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension, 8 showed echocardiographic evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy. Cardiac and renal function evaluated by glomerular filtration rate (GFR) were studied in all patients before and after 20 weeks of quinapril treatment. Systolic pressure decreased from 174.7±16.7 to 131.7±7.7 mmHg (p
