Determinants of Left Ventricular Geometric Alterations and Related Clinical and Metabolic Factors in a General Population

Abstract

Left ventricular (LV) geometric remodeling, like concentric ventricular hypertrophy, has been shown to be associated with elevated cardiovascular morbidity and mortality1–5. Hypertension as a primary cause of LV remodeling, together with other metabolic abnormalities6,7, characterizes cardiac structural and functional abnormalities. Both experimental and… (More)
