Aims Morbid obesity is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The relative effects of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (GBS) and intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) on subclinical myocardial injury, the activity of the cardiac natriuretic system, and systemic inflammation remain unclear. Methods In a 59-week non-randomized clinical trial that included 131 patients with morbid obesity, we compared the effects of GBS and ILI on concentrations of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and I (cTnI), N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) …
