Diastolic dysfunction of left and right ventricles and possibilities for its correction in patients with arterial hypertension

The LV and right ventricular (RV) diastolic function was evaluated in 65 patients with degree II arterial hypertension (AH) (WHO/IAH?, mean age 50.6±1.2 years) using Doppler echoCG at rest and in cold stress. The study demonstrated a possibility for asynchronous development of ventricular diastolic dysfunction with its prevalence of 14.7% for LV and 23.5% for RV. Disorders of both LV and RV diastolic function were revealed in 26.5% of patients. The cold test considerably more frequently induced impairment of RV than LV diastolic function. Both LV and RV diastolic dysfunction can be sufficiently well corrected with lisinopril, nebivolol and amlodipine.
