Background: The myocardial performance index (MPI) is a comprehensive measure of global systolic and diastolic function of the ventricle, and it has an inverse correlation with maximal oxygen consumption. In this study, the potential association between left ventricle MPI and biochemical biomarkers (including iron, homocysteine, and lipids) in elite athletes was investigated.
