Aim of the study: to evaluate the impact of metabolic syndrome and its components on right heart geometry and function.
Objectives: to evaluate structural remodeling of right heart chambers in patients with metabolic syndrome according to its components; to study the impact of the components of metabolic syndrome and sex on right heart mechanics; sonographic evaluation of the epicardial fat thickness in patients with metabolic syndrome and its relation to other sonographic and anthropometric parameters of visceral obesity; to evaluate the correlation of epicardial fat thickness, visceral obesity, insulin resistance and dysfunction and remodeling of right ventricle and atrium in metabolic syndrome.
The scientific novelty and originality: the novelty and originality of the study consist in focusing of the scientific work on the determination of specific components of metabolic syndrome and parameters of visceral obesity responsible for remodeling (morphological and functional) of right heart chambers with underlining of some specific features dependent on sex.
The important scientific problem solved in the thesis consists in the revealing of the main components of metabolic syndrome with important impact on right heart chambers according to sex and association of visceral obesity.
The theoretical importance: the research showed important correlations of the components of metabolic syndrome and the parameters of right heart remodeling, that represent independent factors of prognosis for patients with/without cardiovascular pathology.
The applicable value of the work: the research results showed the importance of measurement of right ventricular hypertrophy, systolic, diastolic and global function of right ventricle, especially in patients with metabolic syndrome. These parameters represent important prognostic factors. More of that, the study demonstrated the necessity and possibility of introduction in daily practice of new parameters for the quantification of visceral obesity, such as epicardial fat thickness, for the complete assessment of cardiometabolic risk in patients with metabolic syndrome.
Practical implementation: The research results were implemented in clinical practice of
