BACKGROUND: Brachial artery distensibility (BrachD) was measured in healthy children to identify associations with atherosclerotic risk factors. METHODS: 969 black and white subjects 13-22 years were classified as lean (L) or overweight (O) and hyperinsulinemic (H-I) or normoinsulinemic (N-I). BP and BrachD were obtained with a DynaPulse Pathway instrument. ANOVA was performed looking for group mean differences. Correlations between BrachD and risk variables were examined. Determinates of… CONTINUE READING
