abstract

  • Application of echocardiography to non-diabetic SHS participants reveals that LV chamber and arterial size are larger in ND/SD Indians and that LV wall thicknesses and mass are higher and LV myocardial contractility lower in Arizona Indians, possibly contributing to the higher than expected rates of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality among Indians in Arizona.
