    Department of Exercise and Sport Science, Manchester Metropolitan University, Crewe and Alsager Faculty, Cheshire, United Kingdom
    Med Sci Sports Exerc 30:824-30. 1998
    ..This study compared linear left ventricular dimensions and mass (LVM), before and after normalizing for body dimensions via allometric and ratio-standard scaling...
  2. ncbi request reprint Estrogen variation and resting left ventricular structure and function in young healthy females
    K P George
    Dept of Exercise and Sport Science, Crewe and Alsager Faculty, Manchester Metropolitan University, Alsager Campus, Cheshire, England
    Med Sci Sports Exerc 32:297-303. 2000
    ..A potential confounding factor in the interpretation of left ventricular (LV) structural and functional data in female subjects could be menstrual phase or contraceptive use upon assessment. To date no study has addressed this issue...

    ..78 and per FFM 1.07, respectively, (P < 0.05). This reveals quantitative differences in heart size independent of body dimensions. We conclude that sample specific AS permits meaningful intersubject or intergroup comparisons...

    A M Batterham
    Department of Exercise and Sport Science, Manchester Metropolitan University, Crewe and Alsager Faculty, Cheshire, United Kingdom
    Am J Physiol 274:H701-8. 1998
    ..Because the 95% confidence interval for the FFM exponents included 0.33, we recommend that linear LV dimensions be indexed by the cube root of FFM. In the absence of FFM data, the root of BSA was found to be the best surrogate index...
