abstract

  • We evaluated cardiovascular features of normotensive and hypertensive adults with left ventricular (LV) mass values exceeding levels predicted for given stroke work, gender, and height, termed "inappropriate" LV mass. Inappropriate LV mass is associated with overweight, concentric LV geometry, and low myocardial systolic function not only in hypertensive subjects, but also in normotensive subjects.
