Background-The different effects of total body weight (TBW), fat-free mass (FFM), and fat mass (FM) on left ventricular (LV) geometry and function are complex. We investigated the associations of changes over time in TBW, FM, and FFM with changes in LV geometry and function. Methods and Results-We analyzed data from 1189 subjects (694 women), aged 44 to 86 years, from the baseline and the 5-year ...
