Abstract: We evaluated, through Doppler echocardiography, left ventricular (LV) mass and function in 82 obese young women (aged < 40 years) who were asymptomatic, without any cardiovascular or pulmonary disease compared with a lean control group matched by age and height. LV mass, LV mass/height, and LV mass/volume were increased in obese women, and a lower LV E- and A-wave velocity ratio was noted, suggesting early cardiac involvement.
