However, compared to control subjects, patients had higher LVMI
value, indicating myocardial hypertrophy, and lower E/A ratio, higher IVRT values and prolonged mitral DcT, indicating impaired diastolic function and increased CA-IMT and higher EFT.
LVM was divided by body surface to calculate LVMI
was calculated according to the Devereux and Reichek formula:
Table-2: Descriptive Statistics and Comparison of Left ventricular mass (LVM) and Left ventricular mass index (LVMI
) at 1st and 6 months visit in Group A and Group B.
* LVM Index (LVMI
) is calculated by dividing the LVM with the surface area.
RWT and LVMI
were significantly higher in SBHF patients than in CONs (RWT: 0.45 [+ or -] 0.04 vs.
The mean age, blood urea, creatinine (pre), GFR (pre), Alb/Cr, EF and LVMI
in group A was 55.40 +- 3.17 years, 30.12 +- 2.92 (mg/dL), 1.01 +- 0.198 (mg/dL), 90.35 +- 5.42 (mL/min/1.73m2), 320.34 +- 107.30 (mg/g), 55.47 +- 5.70 and 130.35 +- 5.45 (g/m2) respectively, while the mean age, blood urea, creatinine (pre), GFR (pre), Alb/Cr, EF and LVMI
in group B was 61.22 +- 5.48 years, 36.42 +- 4.28 (mg/dL), 1.52 +- 0.12 (mg/dL), 80.88 +- 4.64 (mL/min/1.73m2), 614.76 +- 218.20 (mg/g), 39.91 +- 3.36 and 1125 +- 7.13 (g/m2) respectively.
Devereux & Reichek formulated LVM and LVMI
values, and shed light on the work done in this area.
Left ventricular hypertrophy was present in 53%, with a left ventricular mass index (LVMi
) >90 and 110 g/[m.sup.2] for women and men, respectively.
Statistically significant differences between patients and controls were detected in the left atrial size (LAVi, 41.4 mL/[m.sup.2] versus 29.9 mL/[m.sup.2], p <0.001), left ventricular myocardial thickness (IVS, 13.0 mm versus 10.0 mm, p <0.001; PW, 12.0 versus 10.0, p <0.001), and its derivative, the left ventricular myocardial mass (LVMi
, 133.5 g/[m.sup.2] versus 97.0 g/[m.sup.2], p < 0.001), as well as diastolic function measured with E'med.
Compared to patients free of major adverse coronary events (MACE), eGFR and LVEF were lower in patients with MACE, whereas age, LAVI, left atrial diameter (LAD), LVMI
, levels of CRP, NT-proBNP, and hs-cTnT were higher.
The left ventricular mass index (LVMI
) was obtained through the LVM and height (m) elevated to 2.7 power rating.
Left ventricular mass index (LVMI
) was calculated as LVM/body surface area.
