Determinants of left ventricular mass in obesity; a cardiovascular magnetic resonance study.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Obesity is linked to increased left ventricular mass, an independent predictor of mortality. As a result of this, understanding the determinants of left ventricular mass in the setting of obesity has both therapeutic and prognostic implications. Using cardiovascular magnetic resonance our goal was to elucidate the main predictors of left ventricular mass in severely obese subjects free of additional cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS: 38 obese (BMI 37.8 +/- 6.9 kg/m2) and 16 no...
