Blood pressure and cardiac morphology in young children of hypertensive subjects.

Abstract

Our aim was to assess echocardiographic parameters and the effort blood pressure of 50 children of hypertensives with respect to 50 children of normotensives. Systolic and diastolic blood pressures at rest were comparable between the two groups. Left ventricular mass index (LVMI), interventricular septum and posterior wall thicknesses were higher in… (More)
