Table 2 Echocardiographic evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy in the sample

From: Addressing the relationship between cardiac hypertrophy and ischaemic stroke: an observational study

Parameter Number (n- 38) Percentage (%)
LVMI*
No hypertrophy 8 21.1
Mild hypertrophy 6 15.8
Moderate hypertrophy 4 10.5
Severe hypertrophy 19 50.0
RWT**
Concentric hypertrophy 25 65.8
Eccentric hypertrophy 4 10.5
Concentric remodeling 7 18.4
Normal 1 2.6
  1. *LVMI (g/m2); for males: normal (49–115), mildly hypertrophic (116–131), moderately hypertrophic (132–148), severely hypertrophic (>149); for females: normal (43–95), mildly hypertrophic (96–108), moderately hypertrophic (109–121), severely hypertrophic (>121).
  2. **RWT allows further classification of LV mass increase as either concentric hypertrophy (RWT >0.42) or eccentric hypertrophy (RWT ≤0.42).
