Abstract


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES :

Assessment of the relation of changes in left ventricular mass with diastolic dysfunction in untreated hypertensives

 

METHODOLOGY:

100 cases of untreated hypertensives included in the study after taking into account all the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Echocardiography was done for all to access the relation of left ventricular mass index and diastolic dysfunction

 

RESULTS :

Out of 100 patients, 62 patients have grade 1 diastolic dysfunction with increased left ventricular mass, 26 have grade 2 diastolic dysfunction with increased left ventricular mass, and  12 have grade 3 and 4 diastolic dysfunction.

 

CONCLUSION :

The early diastolic filling impaired in hypertensive patients with increased left ventricular mass. The patient having a normal architecture or concentric remodeling have a normal diastolic function. Those with concentric hypertrophy with or without eccentric remodeling will demonstrate diastolic dysfunction
