Table 3 (A) Univariate correlation analyses between ECV and characteristics of the HIV+ population. (B) Multivariate regression models for predictors of ECV expansion. Age, Heart Rate (HR), systolic and diastolic blood pressure, years of therapy and years of exposure to HIV infection were entered in this model. P-values as assessed by Pearson's correlation for normal distributions, Spearman’s correlation for non-normal distributions as well as β estimates and p-values from multivariate regression models are reported
