Cardiac Functional Changes

Changes in cardiac geometry and function resulting from obesity are observed as early as childhood, according to the results of a new study. The relationship between obesity and cardiovascular risk is difficult to assess because obesity is associated with glucose intolerance, diabetes, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol levels.


Compared with the nonobese group, the obese children had thicker LV walls, a 29% larger LV end-diastolic volume, and a 40% larger LV mass. Left atrial (LA) volume, LA volume index, right atrial area, and right ventricular diameter were also significantly larger in the obese children. The differences remained after adjustment for physical development and growth, although the indexed LV systolic and diastolic diameters were similar between the two groups.
