This article explores the value of echocardiography in elderly patients with hypertension and type 2 diabetes. Seventy patients with senile hypertension and type 2 diabetes were enrolled as the study group, and 70 patients with senile essential hypertension were selected as the control group. The left ventricular structure test and cardiac function test showed early diastolic (E-peak) and late diastolic phase. (A peak) the ratio of the highest flow rate of the left ventricular mitral valve.The results showed that the left ventricular diameter (54.23±5.17) mm, left ventricular posterior wall thickness (12.16±0.15) mm, end diastolic ventricular septal thickness (16.32±1.52) mm, left ventricular mass (257.54±26.32) g and left The ventricular mass fraction (154.18±25.31) g/m2 was higher than that of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05).Compared with the control group, the mitral valvular velocity (0.91±0.07), cardiac ejection fraction (34.26±6.75)%, and left ventricular short axis shortening rate (62.58±5.37)% were superior in the early and late diastolic phases of the study group. In the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion: Cardiac echocardiography can fully display cardiac structure and related functional indicators in elderly patients with hypertension and type 2 diabetes.
