Background: Although left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent predictor of mortality in patients with end stage renal disease, few have examined its prevalence before the initiation of dialysis. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between LVH, estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and inflammatory markers in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
