Background Hypertension (HT) is a major comorbidity of obesity that is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and higher mortality. The aim of our study was to evaluate cardiac function in obese hypertensive (OHT) and obese normotensive (ONT) pediatric patients and determine the effects of plasma nitric oxide (NOx) values on cardiac function, while demonstrating the role of plasma NOx in HT in obese pediatric patients.
