Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Candesartan
Subjects were treated for 24 weeks with Candesartan 16mg once daily as initial dose. Subjects were modified investigational product dose to Candesartan 32mg, Candesartan 32mg + Felodipine 5mg, Candesartan 32mg + Felodipine 10mg, sequentially according to their blood pressures.
Drug: Candesartan
16 mg once daily in oral tablet form
Other Name: Atacand

Drug: Candesartan
32 mg once daily in oral tablet form
Other Name: Antacand

Drug: Felodipine
5 mg once daily in oral tablet form

Drug: Felodipine
10 mg once daily in oral tablet form




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change of B Type Natriuretic Peptides (BNP) Level [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Change of B Type Natriuretic Peptides Level of the Subjects With Hypertension and Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) Treated With Candesartan Based Therapy for 24 Weeks was calculated just as the later time point minus the earlier time point. No specific calculation was used.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. LVH(Left Ventricular Hypertrophy) Regression by Echocardiac Parameter, Left Ventricular Mass Index [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Change of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy(LVH) by Echocardiac Parameter, Left Ventricular mass Index (LVMI) was calculated and collected through the way of Last Observational carried forward. LVH/Index was calculated like this: Divide LV mass with Body Surface Area.

  2. Change of Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP) [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Change of Systolic Blood Pressure was calculated and collected through the way of Last Observational carried forward.

  3. Change of Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP) [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]

    Change of Diastolic Blood Pressure was calculated and collected through the way of Last Observational carried forward.

    Only who has diastolic blood pressure data both baseline and follow up was analyzed. Most of patient who enrolled, 302 have a data.


  4. Percent Change of proBNP(B Type Natriuretic Peptides) in Patients Treated With Candesartan Only [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Percent change of proBNP(B type Natriuretic Peptides) was calculated and collected through the way of Last Observational carried forward.

  5. Percent Change of proBNP(B Type Natriuretic Peptides) in Patients With Candesartan Plus Felodipine [ Time Frame: At Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Percent change of proBNP(B type Natriuretic Peptides) was calculated and collected through the way of Last Observational carried forward.
