OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether specific patterns of adverse left ventricular (LV) structural remodeling are associated with differential rates of cardiovascular (CV) outcomes. BACKGROUND It is not known whether a stepwise combinatorial assessment of LV volume, mass, and geometry done to define specific remodeling patterns provides incremental prognostic information. METHODS A total of 3,181 Cardiovascular Health Study participants (mean age, 73 years of age; 60% women, 5… CONTINUE READING
