Abstract

The association between left ventricular hypertrophy and microalbuminuria is actually admitted. Recent studies shown that patients with microalbuminuria have higher left ventricular mass index, worst systolic function and often concentric geometric kind of left ventricular hypertrophy. The efficiency of an adapted and early therapeutic on a potential relationship between reduction of microalbuminuria and improvement of target organ injury, principally heart and kidney, is still to evaluate. The aim of our study is to review geometric and hemodynamic aspect of left ventricular hypertrophy in hypertensive micro-albuminuria patients.
