[Left ventricular mass, forced baseline spirometry and adipocytokine profiles in obese children with and without metabolic syndrome].


INTRODUCTION Recent reports have shown an increase in changes in cardiac and pulmonary function among obese patients. Furthermore, it has also been demonstrated that obesity is a state of chronic inflammation. We hypothesized that obese children with metabolic syndrome exhibit a higher percentage of left ventricular hypertrophy and altered spirometry values… (More)
