Centro de Estudios Cardiovasculares, La Plata, ARGENTINA Journal of Hypertension Volume 32, e-Supplement 1, 2014 Objective: The present study was projected to analyze the wall thickness of right ventricle (RV) and its relationship with the sodium/hydrogen exchanger (NHE) activity in thrombocytes as no hemodynamics signal, over a young population with essential arterial hypertension (HT). Design and method: 750 medical students (20.48± 0.07 years old) for La Plata National University School of Medicine were included in the study. 47 were hypertensive indicating a prevalence of 6% in our population. These 47 and 45 normotensive (NT) randomized of the general population configured our reference group. In each other of them LV mass index (LVMI) and RV wall thickness (RVWT), to characterized ventricular structure, were determined by echocardiographic study. In 24/47 students (13 HT, 11 NT) it was determined in thrombocytes, obtained of a sample of blood of peripheral vein, the velocity of intracellular pH (pHi) recuperation as expression of NHE activity. Results: LVMI was higher in HT group (HT: 77.07 ± 2.21g/m2; NT: 69.36 ± 2.02 g/m2 p
