Abstract
In a major proportion (67%) of those examined (persons with stage-II hypertensive disease who took part in the elimination of the aftermath of the Chernobyl breakdown) with the aid of echocardiography, hypertrophy of the left ventricular (LV myocardium was revealed as was augmentation of the mass of the LV myocardium together with decline in the contractile function, while in other examinees (33%) all above parameters showed no deviation from the norm. This permits predicting probability of cardial complications in such patient populations.
