Primary aldosteronism is associated with a higher incidence of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and diastolic dysfunction than essential hypertension. However, systolic function via endocardial measurements is similar between patients with primary aldosteronism and essential hypertension. Speckle-tracking echocardiography is a sensitive tool which can detect subclinical impairments in systolic function. The aim of this study was to investigate aldosterone-induced subclinical impairments in systolic function.
