Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is prevalent among hypertensive children; however, blood pressure (BP) does not predict its presence. The authors conducted a 1-year prospective cohort study to examine the hypothesis that obesity-related risk factors are associated with left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in hypertensive children, and the association between adiposity and LVMI is mediated by BP-dependent and -independent pathways. A total of 49 hypertensive children were enrolled: 51% were… CONTINUE READING
