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. 3. Regression of cardiac hypertrophy did not last beyond 42 weeks even with continued treatment of propranolol and clonidine.
