INTRODUCTION We investigated the association between echocardiographic (Echo) left ventricular mass (LVM) indexed to body surface area (LVM/BSA) or height(2.7) (LVM/H(2.7)) and electrocardiographic (ECG) variables in 546 Chinese hypertensives. METHODS The study group was stratified by gender and by BMI into obese (BMI > or =28 kg/m(2)), overweight (BMI >(More)
