 Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine intima-media thickness (IMT), arterial stiffness and plasma asymmetric dimethyl arginine (ADMA) on obese mother newborn. Studied individuals were divided into three groups: Group 1: 27 newborn from obese mothers (30≤VKI<35 kg/m²), Group 2: 26 newborn from overweight mothers (25≤BMI<30 kg/m²), Group 3: 29 newborn from medium-weight mothers (18≤BMI<25 kg/m²). Echocardiographic assessments were done on the third day of birth of all the cases. Intima-media thickness and arterial stiffness were evaluated. Plasma ADMA level was measured. Relevant difference was not determined on the analysis in terms of ADMA levels and arterial stiffness in groups. IMT was seen higher in the study group than control group. It is determined that there is raise on IMT in terms of cardiovascular disease risk on obese mother infancy and ADMA levels are not different from control group in this period.

Key words:
Cardiovascular risk, asymmetric dimethyl arginine, arterial stiffness, intima-media thickness, obese mother infancy
