Effect of excess adiposity alone on cardiac morphology and function Obesity is so closely related to its complications of hypertension, diabetes, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, and respiratory disease that it 29 30 ADIPOSE TISSUE AND THE HEART is difficult to distinguish the first pathological event that causes cardiac alterations. Effect of excess adiposity alone on left ventricular geometry and systolic function Isolated excess adiposity is actually related more to functional than to morphological modifications of the heart.
In the adult human heart, epicardial fat is commonly found in the atrioventricular and interventricular grooves, ADIPOSE TISSUE COMPARTMENTS extending to the apex. Minor foci of fat are also located subepicardially in the free walls of the atria and around the two appendages. As the amount of epicardial fat increases, it progressively fills the space between the ventricles, sometimes covering the entire epicardial surface. A small amount of adipose tissue also extends from the epicardial surface into the myocardium, often following the adventitia of the coronary artery branches.
Visceral adiposity induces fatty infiltration of the myocardium by different mechanisms. Two distinctly different patterns of myocardial fat deposition have been identified. The first pattern is characterized by an infiltration of adipocytes from the epicardial adipose tissue to areas between the myocardial fibers. The second pattern, formerly called ‘fatty degeneration’, is characterized by deposition of triacylglycerol droplets within the cytosol of the cardiomyocytes. In metabolic terms, the hypertrophied heart decreases its fatty acid use and increases its reliance on glucose as a fuel.
