The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency of inappropriate left ventricular (LV) mass (iLVM) and factors associated with iLVM in hypertensive patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS). The study included 178 male patients (mean age 45.9±10.5 yrs) with hypertension (HT) and MetS. iLVM in HT patients with MetS was associated with LV diastolic dysfunction and an intensity of vascular remodeling process. Hyperinsulinemia contributes to LVM appropriateness, which aggravates the
