Abstract

Background. Dipyridamole stress transesophageal echocardiography (STEE) is a feasible method for the evaluation of coronary flow velocity reserve (CFR). The aim of the present study was to investigate CFR in hypertensive patients with or without left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Methods. The study comprised 73 patients with a negative coronary angiogram (29 men and 44 women). Three different groups were compared: normotensive patients, hypertensive patients without LVH and hypertensive patients with LVH. Results. CFR was significantly decreased in patients with hypertension with LVH as compared to normotensive cases (2.19±0.50 vs 2.71±1.10; p
