Abstract

Ecocardiography has been widely used as a realtime, reliable tool in the early detection and differentiation of cardiac geometry and function. In Hypertension and prehypertension this tool has become an asset in early assessment and detection of Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and its morphological categorization. Therefore, it helps in the process of prevention detection and prompt management of hypertensive LVH. Prehypertension has now become the criteria of management of raised blood pressure in intial stages so that the levels of BP should not go above to produce full fledged hypertension. By detecting so the irreversible damage can be curtailed and morbidity and mortality can be restricted and minimized since most of the patients are asymptomatic in early days.
