Also, several measures of heart size were made using information from the echocardiogram Alos, the relative wall thickness and left ventricular mass index also increased in parallel to BMI The analysis of data collected revealed that Interventricular septal and left ventricular posterior wall thickness increased as BMI increased.
Left ventricular posterior wall thickness change (LVPWc) was calculated using the following formula (18): LVPWC (%) = [(LVPWs--LVPWd) / LVPWd] x 100 The following Doppler measurements were taken using the apical four-chamber view: early diastolic filling peak velocity (E wave), late diastolic peak velocity (A wave), E/A ratio and E deceleration time.
