Cross-sectional relations of lipid concentrations to left ventricular structural attributes.

Although previous investigations reported on the associations of lipid concentrations with left ventricular remodeling in specific subpopulations, few data exist on these associations in a community-based sample of subjects without cardiovascular disease. In this study, 3,554 Framingham Heart Study participants (mean age 47 years, 53% women) without preexisting clinical cardiovascular disease were examined, and no meaningful associations of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol or non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol with echocardiographic indexes of left ventricular structure were observed. In conclusion, these data do not support an independent association between lipid concentrations and left ventricular structure.
