Normalization for body size and population-attributable risk of left ventricular hypertrophy: the Strong Heart Study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is identified by left ventricular mass (LVM) normalized by body surface area (BSA) or height (in meters) also raised to allometric powers. The presence of LVH detected by these indices predicts increased cardiovascular (CV) events. Whether different indexations of LVH differ in their ability to predict excess… (More)
