Table 4 Circulating resistin concentrations as a determinant of inappropriate left ventricular mass (LVMinappr) or left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in a community sample (n = 647)

From: Associations between circulating resistin concentrations and left ventricular mass are not accounted for by effects on aortic stiffness or renal dysfunction
