Abstract

In both the general population and patients with uncomplicated hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy is an important risk factor associated with such adverse cardiovascular events as myocardial infarction, symptomatic heart failure, stroke, and sudden cardiac death. Herein the substrate for such risk in hypertensive heart disease is reviewed. A structural remodeling of the myocardium rather than its mass is held responsible for such enhanced risk. Clinical and experimental studies are presented to support this premise.
