LVH was defined by left ventricular mass
indexed to body surface area > 125 g/[m.
4% lower left ventricular mass
and lower left and right ventricular volumes.
In cases with severe left ventricular hypertrophy, the increased left ventricular mass
resulted in prolonged QRS complex duration and thus the chances of ventricular late potentials were also increased.
Estimated GFR and subsequent higher left ventricular mass
in young and middle-aged adults with normal kidney function: The Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study.
Results of the above study showed there is decline in the cardiac performance in the case group when compared to the control group as evident by increase in left ventricular mass
and stiffness and poor wall compliance leading to diastolic dysfunction.
Hence, the aim of this study was to determine the relationship between playing positions and left ventricular mass
(LVM) with physical variables for soccer players
The main factor influencing the increase in left ventricular mass
in our study was elevated blood pressure.
Effect of frequent nocturnal hemodialysis vs conventional hemodialysis on left ventricular mass
and quality of life: a randomized controlled trial.
Comparing the two genders, the researchers found something surprising: while both men and women had decreases in left ventricular volume, left ventricular mass
increased in men and decreased slightly in women.
Conversely, with repeated volume load stress associated with endurance training, myocyte phenotype changes lead to an increase in left ventricular cavity allowing for an increase in left ventricular diastole without increases in left ventricular mass
Thus, if the left ventricular mass
exceeds 165 g/[m.
2009), high levels of FGF-23 correlate with an increase in the left ventricular mass
