Evaluation of atrial function has received less attention than that of the ventricle although normal atrial function is required for optimal overall cardiac function. Obesity is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In this study, we compared left atrial functions in obese adults (body mass index = BMI ≥30 kg/m2) with those in non-obese adults (BMI <30 kg/m2) by color tissue Doppler parameters. There were 37 adults with BMI ≥30 kg/m2 (mean age 36 ± 11 years) and 26… CONTINUE READING
