Abstract

The association between obesity and early coronary atherosclerosis and vascular remodeling was assessed in 101 patients. Vessel area, plaque a-rea, maximal plaque thickness, and percent area stenosis were significantly greater in obese patients (body mass index [BMI] > 30) than in overweight patients (BMI between 25 and 30) and normal patients (BMI less than or equal to 25), and remained significant after adjustment for other cardiovascular riskfactors, whereas lumen area was similar between the latter 2 groups. This study demonstrates that obesity is an independent risk factor for early coronary atherosclerosis.
