Prognostic Significance of Left Ventricular Mass Change During Treatment of Hypertension

Increased baseline left ventricular (LV) mass predicts cardiovascular (CV) complications of hypertension, but the relation between lower LV mass and outcome during treatment for hypertension is uncertain. This article determines whether reduction of LV mass during antihypertensive treatment modifies risk of major CV events independent of blood pressure change.
