BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and abnormal systolic function are present in a high proportion of children with CKD. This study evaluated changes in left ventricular (LV) geometry and systolic function in children with mild to moderate CKD as an ancillary project of the Effect of Strict Blood Pressure Control and ACE Inhibition on Progression of Chronic Renal Failure in Pediatric Patients trial. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS Echocardiograms and… CONTINUE READING
