Abstract
We investigated the association of heart rate (HR) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with left ventricular (LV) structure in a multi-rural cohort project in Korea. A total of 3215 subjects were analyzed for factors related to Echo-LV mass index (LVMI). eGFR was positively associated with both types of LVMI whereas HR was negatively associated with both. Odd ratios (ORs) (highest versus lowest quartiles) for LVMI by height2.7 were significant for HR (OR: 0.441, p = 0.0035 in males; OR: 0.638, p = 0.0226 in females), and for eGFR (OR:1.643, p = 0.0145) in females. In conclusion, in addition to age, systolic blood pressure and body mass index, eGFR is positively associated with echocardiographic LVMI and HR is negatively associated with echocardiographic LVMI.
