Resumen

ZAN, Macarena C. De et al. Relationship between left atrial dimensions and global and regional fat depots. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2019, vol.89, n.1, pp.12-19.  Epub 15-Oct-2019. ISSN 1665-1731.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24875/acm.m19000006.

Background and Objectives:

The relationship between body fat depots and the left atrial (LA) dimensions has not been fully explored. Our objective is to determine if there is a relationship not only with total body fat depots, but specifically with regional fatty depots.

Materials and Methods:

It was an observational, retrospective study that included consecutive patients referred to our institution with an order to perform computed tomography angiography triggered by electrocardiogram for different clinical indications. Measurements of the LA were made in the systolic phase, using four and two cameras views.

Results:

A total of 87 patients were included. The mean age was 66.4 ± 12.5 years; 67% were men. The LA volume indexed by the body surface area was 48.0 ± 16.6 cm3/m2. We identified significant correlations between the LA dimensions and the age (p < 0.05). However, no significant correlations were found between the LA dimensions and the body fat depots, either total or regional.

Conclusions:

In this study, we did not identify significant relationships between LA dimensions and global or regional body fat depots.
