Echocardiographic evaluation in systemic hypertension
Keywords:Echocardiography, systemic hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, Congestive heart failure, systolic dysfunction, diastolic dysfunction
Echocardiography can detect cardiac morphologic and hemodynamic change caused by systemic arterial hypertension, echocardiography is a powerful tool for the evaluation of target organ damage, which is essential for the evaluation of cardiovascular risk. This study was conducted at Kamineni Institute of Medical Sciences, Narkatpally,Telangana State. The aim of this study was Echocardiographic evaluation of cardiac status in systemic hypertension patients. All patients of systemic hypertension whose diastolic blood pressure was persistently over 90mm Hg, were selected for study. This includes 50 hypertensive patients of age 30-60 years of both sexes. There were 33 males and 17 female. Hypertension was more common in mean age of 49 years, males are mostly effected than females. Left ventricular hypertrophy seen in 76% of patients, 58% of patients have diastolic dysfunction,6% patients have systolic dysfunction and 12% had both systolic and diastolic dysfunction. About 24% had no left ventricular dysfunction. Congestive heart failure was seen in 10% of patients, among them 4% with LV diastolic dysfunction, 2%systolic dysfunction and 4% with both dysfunctions were noticed.
