Equations for Predicting Left Ventricular Mass in Adult

Purpose:

To estimate the left ventricular mass of an adult using the equations of Shub et al.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiothoracic Radiology

Objective:

imaging studies

ICD-10:

I51.7

Description:

Shub et al developed equations for predicting the left ventricular mass of adults based on age, gender and systolic blood pressure. The estimate is normalized to body surface area (BSA). The authors are from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and in Jacksonville.
