Introduction: The aim of the study was to correlate between osteoporosis and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in older men.
Material and methods: One hundred and forty-six cases of senile male subjects were selected and divided into a normal bone mineral density group, an osteopenia group, and an osteoporosis group based on bone mineral density (BMD). Detailed history inquiry and clinical examination were used to determine biochemical indicators. Femoral neck BMD and lumbar BMD were determined. Electrocardiography was performed to calculate the left ventricular mass index (LVMI). One-way analysis of variance and multiple linear regression analysis were performed.
Results: With the bone mass reduced, LVMI was gradually increased (p < 0.05), incidence of left ventricular hypertrophy was increased, and there were significant differences (p < 0.05). With LVMI as the dependent variable, multiple linear regression analysis showed that lumbar bone density, body mass index, age and serum creatinine were associated with LVMI independently (p < 0.05).
Conclusions: In patients with osteoporosis and osteopenia, LVH rates were much higher than in normal bone mineral density patients. Moreover, there might be a relationship between osteoporosis and LVH.
