abstract

  • This study investigated whether aortic valve (AV) sclerosis was associated with traditional cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and CV events in hypertensive patients with electrocardiographic left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, as previously demonstrated in the general population. AV sclerosis was associated with several CV risk factors and predicted CV events independently of prevalent CV disease and traditional CV risk factors, including LV mass and ejection fraction.
