Objective: Childhood obesity is related to subclinical atherosclerosis. Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and hepatosteatosis are parameters that reflect subclinical atherosclerosis and are shown to be associated with obesity. However, their relation with the corrected QT interval (QTc) has not been thoroughly studied in children. Here, we aimed to research the relation between QTc, hepatic steatosis, and CIMT among obese children.
