Abstract

AIM: Clinical abnormalities associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) only defined by left ventricular mass (LVM) indexed to height are still undefined. We investigated the prevalence, clinical correlates and extracardiac organ damage of such a cardiac phenotype in essential hypertensive patients. METHODS: Subclinical organ damage was searched in 3719 untreated and treated hypertensive patients. LVH was defined by two sets of sex-specific criteria, namely, LVM indexed to height (left ventricular mass index >49/45 g/m in men and women, respectively) and LVM indexed to body surface area (BSA; left ventricular mass index >125/110 g/m in men and women, respectively). Patients were categorized into three groups, according to the absence of LVH by both criteria (n ≤ 1912, group I), presence of LVH by the height criterion only (n ≤ 784, group II) and presence of LVH by both criteria (n ≤ 997, group III). A fourth group (n ≤ 26,
