Obesity is becoming a global epidemic in both children and adults, and it is associated with numerous co-morbidities such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain cancers, and sleep apnea/sleep-disordered breathing. In fact, is an independent risk factor for CVD and CVD risks have been also documented in obese children, and is associated with reduced life expectancy. A variety of adaptations/alterations in cardiac structure and function occur in the individual as… Expand
Obesity and Cardiovascular Disase Risk Factors, Paradox and Impact of Weight Loss
TLDR
The adverse effects of obesity on CV disease risk factors and its role in the pathogenesis of various CV diseases are summarized, the obesity paradox and potential explanation for these puzzling data are reviewed, and a discussion regarding the current state of weight reduction in the prevention and treatment of CV diseases is discussed.

Obesity paradox in heart failure: A matter of debate
  • M. Simonenko

  • European journal of preventive cardiology
  • 2019
TLDR
It seems that weight reduction is not good advice for the heart failure patient, and there is a need for further investigation of CHF outcomes in women, where favourable scores in core components of cardiorespiratory exercise testing might mitigate or even negate the impact of the obesity paradox. Expand
Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease: a Risk Factor or a Risk Marker?
TLDR
The complex relationship between obesity and cardiovascular disorders, in particular coronary atherosclerosis, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation is summarized. Expand
Obesity and Non-Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The non-atherosclerotic effects of obesity on the cardiovascular system are described, and there are some data to suggest certain populations of obese individuals may have less cardiovascular morbidity than their non-obese counterparts. Expand
Clinical manifestation of Obesity
Obesity is an exaggeration of normal adiposity and is a central player in the pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, hypertension, sleep apnea and cancer. ReninExpand
Obesity cardiomyopathy: the role of obstructive sleep apnea and obesity hypoventilation syndrome
TLDR
The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of obesity cardiomyopathy and the proposed pathophysiological mechanisms underlying this disease, as well as to examine the link between obesity cardingopathy and sleep-related disorders. Expand
Major Complications and Management Options of Obesity
TLDR
Obesity prevention should be focused during the early ages as there is a high risk of developing it in the later years. Expand
The Health Burden of Obesity
TLDR
In this chapter, the relationships between obesity and disease, in both children and adults, the underlying mechanisms, and the social and economic consequences are discussed. Expand
Adipose tissue and cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
TLDR
This review will discuss the relationship between obesity and cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and will explore how complications of obesity impact on mortality, while healthy lifestyle may prevent them. Expand
Correlation of Obesity and Hypertension between Normotensive and Hypertension Among Adults
Obesity is an important risk factor for many chronic physical and mental illnesses. Obesity is abnormal or excessive fat accumulation, which means it must be saved for the first time. Obesity andExpand

TLDR
Weight loss has beneficial impacts on functional and structural cardiac status and will be reviewed in this report. Expand
Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease: Pathophysiology, Evaluation, and Effect of Weight Loss: An Update of the 1997 American Heart Association Scientific Statement on Obesity and Heart Disease From the Obesity Committee of the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism
TLDR
The available evidence of the impact of obesity on CVD is reviewed with emphasis on the evaluation of cardiac structure and function in obese patients and the effect of weight loss on the cardiovascular system. Expand
Exercise in weight management of obesity.
TLDR
There is a clear dissociation between the adaptation of cardiorespiratory fitness and the improvements in the metabolic risk profile that can be induced by endurance training programs, and as long as the increase in energy expenditure is sufficient, low-intensity endurance exercise is likely to generate beneficial metabolic effects that would be essentially similar to those produced by high-intensity exercise.

Prognostic impact of body weight and abdominal obesity in women and men with cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Obesity, particularly abdominal adiposity, worsens the prognosis of patients with CVD; weight reduction program should be integrated in the active management of these patients. Expand

TLDR
Intervention in obesity, in addition to the well established risk factors, appears to be an advisable goal in the primary prevention of CVD. Expand

Cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality are increased in men with the metabolic syndrome, even in the absence of baseline CVD and diabetes, according to the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study. Expand

TLDR
Obesity is associated with accelerated coronary atherosclerosis in adolescent and young adult men and support the current emphasis on controlling obesity to prevent adult coronary heart disease. Expand
Overweight and obesity as determinants of cardiovascular risk: the Framingham experience.
TLDR
The overweight category is associated with increased relative and population attributable risk for hypertension and cardiovascular sequelae and interventions to reduce adiposity and avoid excess weight may have large effects on the development of risk factors and cardiovascular disease at an individual and population level.

Clinical implications of obesity with specific focus on cardiovascular disease: a statement for professionals from the American Heart Association Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism: endorsed by the American College of Cardiology Foundation.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that weight loss and physical activity can prevent and treat obesity-related coronary heart disease risk factors and should be considered a primary therapy for obese patients with cardiovascular disease. Expand

  • M. Alpert
  • Medicine

TLDR
Obesity produces an increase in total blood volume and cardiac output because of the high metabolic activity of excessive fat, which may lead toLeft ventricular dilation, increased left ventricular wall stress, compensatory (eccentric)left ventricular hypertrophy, and left vent cardiac diastolic dysfunction.
