Impact of body composition, fat distribution and sustained weight loss on cardiac function in obesity.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Obesity is associated with alterations in left ventricular function varying along with the degree of fatness, but the mechanisms underlying this co-variation are not clear. In a case-control study we examined how sustained weight losses affect cardiac function and report on how body composition and fat distribution relate to the left ventricular… (More)
