A single epidemiologic screening of schoolchildren at 11-17 years of age revealed a higher heart performance index during exercise peaks in individuals with one or several atherosclerosis precursors, as compared to that of children showing no precursors of the disease. It is suggested that high heart performance index in schoolchildren with atherosclerosis precursors reflects cardiovascular overstrain rather than high exercise tolerance.
