OBJECTIVE To determine whether arterial stiffness relates to left ventricular mass (LVM) in adolescents and young adults. STUDY DESIGN Demographic, anthropometric, laboratory, echo, carotid ultrasound and arterial stiffness data were obtained in 670 subjects 10 to 24 years of age (35% male, 62% non-Caucasian). Global stiffness index (GSI) was calculated from five measures of carotid artery stiffness, augmentation index, brachial distensibility, and pulse wave velocity (1 point if ≥95th% for… CONTINUE READING
