Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy has been repeatedly shown to be associated with a marked increase in mortality risk. Available data, however, do not provide evidence that the risk associated with the increase in cardiac muscle mass is independent of the severity of preexistent coronary artery disease. In a cohort of predominantly black patients with a high prevalence of hypertension and LV hypertrophy, LV mass as estimated by echocardiography was found to be a powerful prognostic factor… CONTINUE READING
