  Patients with LVH Patients without LVH p Value
Men/women (n) 9/10 6/14 0.33
Age (years) 53 (26 – 69) 45 (22 – 65) 0.28

  1. LVH was diagnosed if septal or posterior wall end-diastolic thickness ≥ 12 mm in non-hypertensives and ≥ 14 mm in medically treated hypertensives [23]. BEHL0.5–4 kHz, better ear hearing level over the frequencies 0.5 kHz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz and 4 kHz. The values are medians (range)
