Abstract

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders of women during the reproductive period. Cardiovascular risk factors are more frequent in patients with PCOS. We aimed to investigate the P-wave dispersion (Pd), inter-and intra-atrial conduction time and mechanical functions of the left atrium (LA) in patients with PCOS.
