Objective - It has been previously reported that intraventricular flow patterns in some hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy, change to patterns similar to flow profiles of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The purpose of the study was to assess left ventricular outflow and mid-septal intraventricular flow patterns in hypertensive and normotensive patients.
