Abstract :We report two heart failure cases in which the left ventricular (LV) mass increased after heart rate (HR)-lowering therapy. The initial LV mass index was 98 and 121g/m^2, respectively. After HR-lowering therapy, the HR was reduced from 120 and 100beats/min to 70 and 60beats/min, respectively. After HR reduction and clinical stabilization, the LV mass index was 110 and142 g/m^2, respectively, with LV chamber shrinking. Elevated resting HR was considered to indicate deteriorating target organ damage and worse prognosis. The present findings contrast with the previous concept that HR-lowering is good for patients’ health.
