LV Mass as a Predictor of CVD Events in Older Adults With and Without Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to examine the prognostic significance of left ventricular (LV) mass for cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in older adults with and without metabolic syndrome (MetS) and diabetes mellitus (DM).
