#Cardiac Structure and Function in Elite Female and Male #Soccer Players

Population-specific normative data are essential for the evaluation of competitive athletes. At present, there are limited data defining normal electrocardiographic (ECG) and echocardiographic values among elite US soccer players.. .. A total of 238 athletes (122 [51%] female; mean [SD] age, 20 [4] years; age range, 15-40 years) were included. Male athletes demonstrated a higher prevalence of normal training-related ECG findings, while female athletes were more likely … Continue reading #Cardiac Structure and Function in Elite Female and Male #Soccer Players

Prognostic value of #electrocardiographic abnormalities in adults from the Brazilian longitudinal study of adults’ health

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are highly preventable non-communicable diseases. ECG is a potential tool for risk stratification with respect to CVD. Our aim was to evaluate ECG’s role in all-cause and cardiovascular mortality prediction. Methods Participants from the Brazilian Longitudinal Study of Adult Health, free of known CVD at baseline were included. A 12-lead ECG was obtained at baseline (2008–2010). Participants were followed up to 2018 … Continue reading Prognostic value of #electrocardiographic abnormalities in adults from the Brazilian longitudinal study of adults’ health

Association of #Obesity Phenotypes with Electrocardiographic Markers of Poor Outcomes in the General Population

This study aimed to investigate the association of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and other obesity phenotypes with electrocardiographic (#ECG) markers to understand the pathophysiological basis of increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk associated with these phenotypes metabolically healthy without obesity [MHNO; reference] Higher odds of prolonged PR interval, P‐wave duration, and QRS duration were observed among all phenotypes compared with MHNO, with the highest in participants … Continue reading Association of #Obesity Phenotypes with Electrocardiographic Markers of Poor Outcomes in the General Population
