abstract

  • In a large clinical population of hypertensive subjects with low prevalence of obesity, population risk attributable to LV hypertrophy was not meaningfully different in relation to the type of normalization of LV mass for body size. Height-based methods perform as well as body surface area-based ones. We suggest that the prevalence of obesity in hypertensive populations might substantially influence differences in population risk attributable to LVH identified by different methods of normalizing LV mass.
