OBJECTIVE To estimate the contribution of heredity to the variance in left ventricular mass (LVM), and to ascertain whether genetic factors may interact with non-genetic factors in promoting LVM growth. SUBJECTS AND SETTING The study population consisted of 290 healthy parents and 251 healthy children living in Tecumseh, Michigan, USA. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Correlation of parents' LVM with offspring's LVM adjusting for a number of clinical variables. METHODS LVM in parents and offspring… CONTINUE READING
