1. A 60 week study on the regression of cardiac hypertrophy was carried out in hypertensive patients receiving propranolol and clonidine.
2. M mode echocardiography 6 weekly for ventricular wall and cavity dimensions and ventricular function revealed decrease in internal dimensions, wall thickness and cardiac mass from 12-18 weeks onwards.
