abstract

  • The presence of LVH identified by LVM normalized for height to allometric powers is associated with a higher proportion of incident CV events than is LVH detected by normalization for BSA and is convenient for identification of individuals at high risk and in need of preventive intervention in populations with high prevalence of obesity. Allometric power methods allow detection of prognostically adverse, obesity-related LVH, which is unidentified using BSA.
