Fifteen children and adolescents who had repair of coarctation of the aorta before age 15, who were not hypertensive at rest, and who had resting arm-leg blood pressure gradients of less than 20 mm Hg underwent noninvasive evaluation of left ventricular structure and function, aortic stiffness, and residual coarctation as well as bicycle exercise testing.(More)
This is a report on the initial from an ongoing study of blood pressure in ninth to twelfth grade students in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The purpose was to establish standards, to determine the incidence of hypertension, and to examine the relationship of blood pressure to age, weight, height, sex, and race. Subjects with persistent hypertension were(More)
Twelve adolescents with essential hypertension were studied to determine the effect of exercise training on plasma catecholamine concentrations, blood pressure and cardiovascular haemodynamics at rest and during submaximal exercise and orthostatic stress. Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) increased 13% with training while body weight and body fat did not(More)
Six adolescents with persistent essential hypertension were examined to determine the effect of weight training on their blood pressure and hemodynamics. Five had first completed an endurance training program; one subject trained only by weight lifting. All subjects were reevaluated after 5 +/- 2 months of weight training, and 12 +/- 2 months after(More)
Twenty-five adolescents (aged 16 +/- 1 years) whose blood pressure (BP) was persistently above the 95th percentile for their age and sex were studied before and after 6 +/- 1 months of exercise training and again 9 +/- 1 months after the cessation of training. Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2) increased significantly with training. There was no change in(More)
