Relation of left ventricular mass to QTc in normotensive severely obese patients.

Abstract

Prolongation of the corrected QT interval (QTc) has been described in obese subjects. This study assesses the relation of left ventricular (LV) mass to QTc in normotensive severely obese subjects. Fifty normotensive patients whose BMI was ≥40 kg/m(2) (mean age: 38 ± 7 years) were studied. QTc was derived using Bazett's formula. LV mass was calculated using… (More)
