Abstract

Objective: Obesity is a major modifiable risk factor for atherosclerosis. Thus, early risk markers are needed to identify obese subjects. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between body composition and arterial stiffness documented by Doppler-derived renal resistive index (RRI).
