La obesidad representa un factor riesgo importante a padecer enfermedades cardiovasculares, en fase temprana se desarrolla hipertrofia ventricular izquierda, la cual representa un factor de riesgo de cardiovascular independiente, en niños como en el adultos. En esta revisión se describen los mecanismos fisiopatológicos que ocasionan la hipertrofia cardiaca. 


Obesity is associated with significant increase cardiovascular risk, the development of left ventricular hypertrophy early stage, is an independent cardiac risk factor in children and adults. In this review, we describe physiopathology mechanisms to produce the cardiac hypertrohpy.


Palabras claves: hipertrofia ventricular, obesidad, adipocito, cardiomiocito, ventricular hypertrohpy.
