Although it is recognized that both hypertension and obesity are associated with increased left ventricular mass, the relative impacts of obesity, arterial hypertension, and gender on the prevalence of ventricular hypertrophy remain uncertain. Accordingly, echocardiographic left ventricular mass normalized for height to the power of the allometric or growth relation between ventricular mass and height was compared in 164 normotensive subjects (85 men [24 obese] and 79 women [28 obese], aged 45… CONTINUE READING
