LVEDMWT can be simply estimated from LVM and LVEDV with high accuracy and precision. Estimated LVEDMWT can in turn be used to calculate TVR as a new index of relative wall thickness. The maximum TVR found in endurance athletes was lower than the upper limit for healthy normals. Therefore, increased TVR effectively rules out athlete’s heart as an alternative diagnosis in patients with increased wall thickness.
