Table 1 Patient characteristics in the LVH and control groups

From: Midwall ejection fraction for assessing systolic performance of the hypertrophic left ventricle

Item LVH (n=30) Control (n=30) P-value
Age (years) 66.0±15.7 62.9±14.5 0.4321
Male (%) 18 (60%) 17 (56%) 0.5893
Height (cm) 160.6±9.2 161.6±9.6 0.6551
Weight (kg) 58.9±11.6 59.2±11.3 0.9121
BMI (kg/m2) 22.7±3.4 22.5±2.7 0.7824
Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 133.3±13.4 122.7±12.3 0.1012
Diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) 75.6±10.9 69.4±10.4 0.0516
Hypertension 30 (100%) 5 (16%) <0.0001
Diabetes mellitus 5 (16%) 4 (13%) 0.5892
Hyperlipidemia 12 (40%) 8 (27%) 0.1257
  1. Data are shown as a number (%) or mean ± S.D. LVH = left ventricular hypertrophy; BMI = body mass index. There were no significant differences in mean age, gender, height, weight, BMI, systolic and diastolic blood pressure between the two groups. Frequencies of diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia did not differ significantly between the two groups, but the frequency of hypertension in the LVH group was significantly higher than that in the control group.
