OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP) and regional left ventricular (LV) function in asymptomatic individuals without a history of cardiovascular disease. BACKGROUND C-reactive protein is associated with an increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease. However, the relationship between CRP and subclinical LV dysfunction has not been evaluated in asymptomatic individuals. METHODS Regional myocardial function was analyzed as peak… CONTINUE READING
