Data on the prognostic implications of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in the Framingham Study based on routine ECG, echocardiogram (ECHO) and X-ray determination with 36 years of follow-up indicate that LVH has emerged as a powerful indicator of rapidly evolving lethal atherosclerotic disease, whether determined by ECG, ECHO or X-ray. Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality increase progressively with left ventricular muscle mass from lowest to highest values. The ECG and X-ray versions of… CONTINUE READING
