  1. Black-white differences in electrocardiographic left ventricular mass and its association with blood pressure (the ARIC study).

    Article - En anglais

    Black-white differences in the association between antihypertensive therapy, continuous measures of mean arterial and pulse pressures and left ventriculars (LV) mass estimated from a multivariable electrocardiographic algorithm were examined in 6,020 men (23% black) and 7,970 women (29% black) participating in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study.

    Mean arterial and pulse pressures, weight, the percentage of subjects taking antihypertensive medication, and LV mass were higher in black than in white men (98 vs 89 mm Hg, 47 vs 46 mm Hg, 188 vs 187 pounds, 30% vs 17%, and 243 vs 217 g, respectively).
