MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with predialysis phase of CRF (n = 61; serum creatinine 412.4 +/- 242.69 mumol/l), essential hypertension (EH) (n = 35) and healthy volunteers (n = 20) were assessed with echocardiography. The patients were not significantly different by the level of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, age and gender. RESULTS Left ventricular mass index (LVMI) was… CONTINUE READING
