Abstract

Objective: Metabolic syndrome (MS) was independently associated with increased risk of incident heart failure and coronary artery disease. In this study, we sought to identify whether there is an association between metabolic syndrome components and left ventricular diastolic functions and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels.
