Body weight is more important than family history of hypertension for left ventricular function.
Left ventricular function was studied in young men with a positive family history of hypertension for two generations (n=15).
The findings were compared with three control groups:
one age-, sex-, and weight-matched group with a negative family history of hypertension (n=14);
one normotensive control group unselected as regards family history of hypertension (n=27);
and one group also unselected regarding family history of hypertension but selected with blood pressure criteria to have mild blood pressure elevation (n=59).
