OBJECTIVE To examine the influence of genetic susceptibility to essential hypertension (EH) and the genetic susceptibility to premature myocardial infarction (MI) on longitudinal development of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and left ventricular mass (LVM) in youth. METHODS Individual SBP and LVM growth curves across age were created for a sample of 745 subjects (age range: 4.9-27.5 years) and a sample of 687 subjects (age range: 8.2-27.5 years), respectively. Each sample had an approximately… CONTINUE READING
