Left ventricular geometric patterns and adaptations to hemodynamics are similar in elderly men and women

BACKGROUND Common conditions such as obesity and hypertension result in hemodynamic alterations that will induce remodeling of the left ventricle (LV). However, differences between the genders in the relationship of hemodynamics to LV geometry are not well known.The present study aims to investigate differences between the genders in this respect, in a… CONTINUE READING
