Influence of fat-free mass on detection of appropriateness of left ventricular mass: The HyperGEN Study
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
Deviation of LVM from values that compensate hemodynamic load can be similarly identified using different measures of body build and methods to generate stroke work. However, the use of height(2.7) to compute LVM as a percentage of that predicted appears to identify deviations from compensatory values that are independently related to prevalent cardiovascular disease more effectively than does the use of fat-free mass.
