Large panels of studies have examined the association between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism and risk for left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), yet with inconclusive results. We therefore sought to evaluate this association via a comprehensive meta-analysis. A random-effects model was applied irrespective of between-study heterogeneity. Data and study quality were independently assessed by two investigators. Total 52 studies encompassing 3,663 case… CONTINUE READING
