Objective:To assess epicardial fat volume (EFV), myocardial TG content (MTGC) and metabolic profile in severely obese patients, and to determine whether ectopic fat depots are linked to metabolic disorders or myocardial function.Research design and methods:Sixty-three subjects with normal LV function and no coronary artery disease, including 33 lean (BMI: 21.4±2.0 kg m−2) and 30 obese (BMI: 41.8±6 kg m−2) patients, underwent 3-T cardiovascular MRI, and anthropometric, biological and visceral… CONTINUE READING
