Echocardiographic Assessment of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease in Different Age Groups
1.1. Introduction: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is characterised by impaired kidney function and a gradual Decrease In Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). In CKD, Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) is a common sign. This study was done with an objective to estimate the prevalence of LVH by echocardiography in patients with CKD and to find out its correlation with severity of CKD.
