abstract

  • With the exception of one study in dialysis patients, LVH consistently predicted high risk, independently of examined covariates, with no clear difference in relation to race, presence or absence of hypertension or coronary disease, or between clinical and epidemiologic samples. These results clarify the strong relation between LVH and adverse outcome and emphasize the clinical importance of its detection.
