Ethnic and sex differences in fatty liver on cardiac computed tomography: the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.
African-Americans have a lower prevalence, and Hispanics have a higher prevalence, of fatty liver than do other ethnicities. There are distinct ethnic variations in the prevalence of fatty liver even in patients with the metabolic syndrome or obesity, suggesting that genetic factors may play a substantial role in the phenotypic expression of fatty liver.
Serum phosphate is associated with aortic valve calcification in the Multi-ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA).
Data indicate that serum phosphate levels are significantly associated with aortic valve calcification prevalence.
Myocardial steatosis and its association with obesity and regional ventricular dysfunction: evaluated by magnetic resonance tagging and 1H spectroscopy in healthy African Americans.
This study found no relationship between cardiac steatosis and left ventricular volumes or ejection fraction, though there is some evidence suggesting that cardiac steatosis may be associated with LV regional function in healthy African-American women.
Statin use is not associated with presence of and severity of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
These results favor statin use in subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, since its use is not associated with the presence of the disease or increased fibrosis.
Relation of thoracic aortic distensibility to left ventricular area (from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis [MESA]).
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that decreasing aortic compliance and increasing arterial stiffness are independently associated with increased left ventricular area.
Measurement of arterial activity on routine FDG PET/CT images improves prediction of risk of future CV events.
Arterial fluorodeoxyglucose, measured from routinely obtained PET/CT images, substantially improved incident CVD prediction beyond Framingham risk score among individuals undergoing cancer surveillance.
A systematic review: burden and severity of subclinical cardiovascular disease among those with nonalcoholic fatty liver; should we care?
Considerable evidence supports the association of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease with subclinical atherosclerosis, independent of traditional risk factors and metabolic syndrome.
Relation of hepatic steatosis to atherogenic dyslipidemia.
This article looks at the relationship between fatty liver and atherogenic lipid profiles.
