Determinants of Arterial Function in Hypertension
The goal of this project is to identify factors that influence arterial function and determine the effect of arterial function on ventricular function. The study is being conducted in a well-characterized, community-based cohort of hypertensive sibships enrolled in the Genetic Epidemiology Network of Arteriopathy (GENOA) study.
Participants undergo a comprehensive vascular assessment, which includes:
