  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

The aim of this study was to study the effect of enalapril (E) on left ventricular (LV) mass, LV func-tion and blood renin-angiotensin (RA) in patients with hypertension. Sixteen hypertensives were included in this study (WHO Ⅰ 8, WHO Ⅱ 8, 49.5±10.5 yrs). They were examined for blood pressure and heart rate. Chest X-ray film, echocardiography (echo), X-ray computed tomography (CT) and RA before and after about 6 months of E administration were studied. The LV mass was calculated by CT. The LV function was measured by echo. RAS was unchanged during this study.
