Abstract

Obesity causes structural and functional changes in the hearts of children, in addition to increasing cardiometabolic risk and predisposition to early coronary artery disease. In this chapter, we summarize the evidence of obesity-related cardiomyopathy and discuss the pathophysiology of its development. We also describe the current practices in its diagnosis and treatment in children. The evidence shows that obesity-related cardiac changes in childhood can eventually worsen cardiac function and increase the risk of heart failure in early adulthood. Thus, efforts to improve the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of obesity-related cardiomyopathy could improve not only length and quality of life for obese children but also produce substantial savings in future care.
