Echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular hypertrophy: comparison to necropsy findings. Am J Cardiol 1986;57:450-8.

Hypertension, smoking and LV hypertrophy were more prevalent in the DD group in comparison to the group with normal diastolic function (p < 0.001).

LV mass (truncated ellipsoid) (2D) 1.05 p {(b + t)2 x [2/3 x (a + t) + d - [d3 / 3 x (a + t)2]] - b2 x [2/3 a + d - (d3 / 3 x a2)]} (gm)

4 OBJECTIVE To explore the prognostic value of echocardiographically determined LV mass and geometry in the specific setting of high risk MI

LV mass can be determined from echocardiography, based on an empirically derived formula from Devereaux and colleagues. LV mass varies directly with body ...

Calculation of left ventricular (LV) mass. Calculation of LV mass by the area-length method and truncated ellipsoid method (see text).

LVMi: left ventricular mass index, SBP: systolic blood pressure, FBS: fasting blood sugar, VO2max: maximal O2 uptake, HR recovery: heart rate recovery, ...

However, hypertrophy in the left ventricle was not significant, based on mass index values. Conventional Doppler parameters did not differ between the two ...

Relation of Left Ventricular Mass to Prognosis in Initially Asymptomatic Mild to Moderate Aortic Valve StenosisCLINICAL PERSPECTIVE | Circulation: ...

However, many fail to appreciate that EF is highly afterload sensitive. For example, a patient with HFrEF and an LVEF 35% who is given an acute dose of ...

The four patterns of left ventricular geometry, proposed by Ganau et al. [6] in 1992 with modifications regarding LV mass index (LVMI) and relative wall ...

This results in tangential scan planes that tend to underestimate volume and overestimate the myocardial muscle mass.

There was no change in left ventricular mass at month three (p = 0.511 by 3D echocardiography) and month six (p = 0.706 for 2D echocardiography, ...
