Regression of ECG-LVH is Associated with Lower Risk of New-Onset Heart Failure and Mortality in Patients with Isolated Systolic Hypertension; The LIFE Study

Hypertension and electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy (ECG-LVH) are strong predictors of heart failure (HF). It is unclear whether regression of ECG-LVH during treatment predicts less new-onset HF in patients with isolated systolic hypertension (ISH).
Regression of time-varying Cornell product was associated with similar reductions in risk of new-onset HF and the combined endpoint of HF or death in ISH and non-ISH patients.
