Conlon et al correlated the systolic blood pressure of stable hemodialysis patients with their left ventricular mass. The authors are from Duke University.
(1) mean systolic blood pressure over 24 hours
(2) predialysis systolic blood pressure
(3) left ventricular mass in grams per square meter BSA
If the data in Figure 2 (page 2661) is used to generate linear equations:
mass of the left ventricle in grams per square meter BSA =
= (2.174 * (mean systolic blood pressure)) + 7.714
mass of the left ventricle in grams in grams per square meter BSA =
= (2.505 * (predialysis systolic blood pressure)) - 77.43
