Association of Arsenic Exposure With Cardiac Geometry and Left Ventricular Function in Young Adults
Aortic Valve Stenosis
Coronary Artery Bypass
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
Arsenic exposure was related to an increase in LV wall thickness and LV hypertrophy in young American Indians with a low burden of cardiovascular risk factors. The relationship was stronger in participants with prehypertension or hypertension, suggesting that potential cardiotoxic effects of arsenic might be more pronounced in individuals already undergoing cardiovascular adaptive mechanisms following elevated systemic blood pressure.
