The article discusses research which investigated link between first trimester fetal growth impairment and cardiovascular outcomes in school age children. It describes selection and participation of both mothers and children in detailed cardiovascular follow-up studies and cardiovascular outcomes recorded which include blood pressure and insulin measures. It also explores the longitudinal growth analyses performed and the potential application of study results in high risk populations.
