OBJECTIVE Obesity is an important risk factor for heart failure in both women and men. Dyssynchrony between right and left ventricular contraction and relaxation has been identified as an independent predictor of heart failure. We examined the relationship of ventricular synchronization abnormalities with the concentration of proinflammatory cytokines in obese women at baseline and after sustained weight loss. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Echocardiographic parameters of ventricular… CONTINUE READING
