Cardiac muscle responds to increased afterload by developing hypertrophy. During the early stages of hypertension, the heart can be transiently, but frequently, exposed to increased afterload. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) assessed by electrocardiography (ECG) can be used to predict future development of hypertension.Sokolow-Lyon voltage and Cornell product were calculated using ECG in 5770 normotensive participants who visited our… CONTINUE READING
