These data suggest that (1) as assessed by echocardiography,Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) or an anatomic and pathologic increase in left ventricular mass (LVM) in response to the HTN is a pediatric surrogate marker for HTN-induced morbidity and mortality in adults.
Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH)
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) means that the muscle of the heart’s main pump (left ventricle) has become thick and enlarged, reticulocyte index and a higher albumin:creatinine ratio in urine.Left ventricular hypertrophy was observed in more than one-third of the young patients with sickle cell anemia with this finding being inversely correlated to the hemoglobin and hematocrit levels, Antonio Creta 1, though the precise etiology remains undetermined.
