Abstract

This study sought to examine the relationships between right ventricular (RV) function and geometry, morbid obesity with and without the metabolic syndrome, and the effect of long-term weight loss. Obese (n = 153, BMI 41.2 ± 8.7 kg/m2) and healthy non-obese control subjects (n = 38, BMI 25.5 ± 3.3 kg/m2) of similar age and gender distribution were prospectively studied during the course of a ...
