Abstract

Aims Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is common in obese subjects, and a relationship between epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), increased adipocytokines, and cardiovascular diseases has been reported. This study sought to examine as to whether the adipo‐fibrokine activin A is a link between increased EAT, the metabolic syndrome (MetS), and LVDD in severely obese subjects. Methods ...
