  • See adipose

    • ‘Grossly, the right ventricular chamber was moderately to markedly dilated, and its free wall showed extensive myocardial adiposity.’
    • ‘For example, central adiposity is linked with insulin resistance, whereas centrifugal or gluteal adiposity is not.’
    • ‘Measures of adiposity, smoking behaviour, and the fatty acids in adipose tissue were similar in men with and without plaques.’
    • ‘The left ventricle displayed only a few microfocal areas of adiposity, which were localized to the subepicardial region.’
    • ‘Central abdominal adiposity has a stronger association with CV risk factors than peripheral obesity and is more predictive of coronary events.’
