Abstract

ZOCALO, Yanina et al. Subclinical artery damage in children, adolescents and youth: Analysis of the association with risk factors of adult atherosclerosis and reversibility through early intervention. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.2, pp.176-187. ISSN 1688-0420.

Strategies for prevention, early detection and treatment of cardiovascular diseases are focused in adults. This is so despite it is known that: a) atherosclerosis starts in childhood; b) exposure to cardiovascular risk factors associates early vascular changes in children and increased cardiovascular risk when they become adults; c) cardiovascular risk factors’ control in childhood associates an improvement in cardiovascular morbi-mortality. In this context, in this work we review available evidence aiming at analyzing: a) cardiovascular risk factors exposure and development of vascular alterations in childhood and their relationship with adults’ atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risk; b) the vascular effects/impact of interventions designed to control cardiovascular risk factors in childhood.

Keywords : ATHEROSCLEROSIS; CAROTID INTIMA - MEDIA THICKNESS; PEDIATRICS; PRIMARY PREVENTION; ARTERIAL STIFFNESS.
