abstract

  • Additional characterization of volume load and contractile efficiency improves hemodynamic prediction of LV mass (R(2)=.30 to .44) over the use of systolic blood pressure alone (R(2)=.05), with a further increase in R(2) to .51 when demographic variables are also considered. However, nearly half of the ventricular mass variability remains unexplained.
