PURPOSE: ASF participation rates in the United States are highest among high school (HS) athletes. This study sought to compare the cardiovascular response to HS versus collegiate ASF participation. METHODS: ASF participants (HS, N=61; Collegiate, N=87) were studied at pre- and post-season time points with echocardiography and applanation tonometry. Primary outcome variables included: left ventricular (LV) mass index, LV diastolic function (early relaxation velocity [E′]), and arterial stiffness (pulse wave velocity [PWV]). RESULTS: HS (17.1±0.4 years old) and collegiate ASF participants (18±0.4 years old) experienced similar LV hypertrophy (ΔLV mass HS=10.5±10 ...
