BACKGROUND AND AIM Weight and height are two major determinants of left ventricular mass (LVM); the anthropometric parameter to which LVM should be normalized remains, however, debated. In a population of hypertensives, we compared the prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) defined by two indexation criteria of LVM in different subgroups of body mass index (BMI). METHODS A total of 4468 essential hypertensives included in the Evaluation of Target Organ Damage in Hypertension (ETODH… CONTINUE READING
