Hypertensive heart disease

Common Name(s)

Hypertensive heart disease

Hypertensive heart disease refers to heart disease caused by high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure makes the heart work harder than normal, which causes the heart muscle to thicken over time. If not treated, chest pain, heart attack, stroke, and heart failure may occur. A physician can diagnose hypertensive heart disease by taking blood pressure measurements and running stress tests and imaging. Hypertensive heart disease is treated by addressing high blood pressure directly through medication and healthy life style changes. If the heart is badly damaged, surgery to repair or replace the heart may be needed.
