abstract

  • The LVM exceeding the compensatory needs for workload is associated with delayed LV relaxation as well as mild midwall and chamber systolic dysfunction, independently of demographic, clinical, and hemodynamic confounders. Inappropriately high LVM also correlates with features of increased myocardial stiffness, coexisting with evidence of prolonged LV relaxation.
