Fat deposits near the heart linked to clogged arteries. (Embargoed until 4 p.m. EST, Monday, Nov 16.) Along with abdominal fat, fat deposits near the heart itself (pericardial fat), have been associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors linked to overweight and obesity that increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Researchers discovered that pericardial fat alone was associated with clogged arteries (detected by magnetic resonance imaging), independent of other known risk factors such as high blood pressure and smoking. The results suggest that pericardial fat may be involved in the development of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. The study involved 94 male participants in the ongoing Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) study, a long-term population-based study of ethnically diverse Americans in six urban U.S. regions. NHLBI spokesperson: Diane Bild, M.D. Study investigator: Cuilian Miao, M.D., Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. Dr. Miao can be reached at 443-248-1014 or cmiao2@jhmi.edu.
