Left ventricular mass and diastolic variables in healthy controls and patients infected by HIV

  • Values are mean (SD).

  • 2-150 E/A ratio: relation between peak velocity of early (E) and late (A) ventricular filling.

  • 2-a p<0.05 v healthy controls;

  • 2-b p<0.01 v healthy controls;

  • 2-c p<0.001 v healthy controls;

  • 2-d p<0.05 v well nourished HIV infected patients;

  • 2-e p<0.01 vwell nourished HIV infected patients.
