This becomes particularly evident when the hypertension is associated with left ventricular hypertrophy. To combat the continuing high mortality from myocardial infarction in hypertensive heart disease, however, all aspects of the relationship must be studied. Thus, addressing the interface from an epidemiological standpoint as well as from a pathological point is critical and progress in these areas as well as in areas of management are ultimately likely to lead to a fall in morbidity and mortality from ischemic heart disease in patients with hypertension.
