Abstract

Our results demonstrated increased BAP score was related to increased LVMI and LVH independent of traditional risk factors such as old age, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, anemia, hyperlipidemia and chronic kidney disease. Therefore, the BAP score obtained from the same examination might be useful and convenient in identifying patients with increased LVMI and LVH.
