Acromegaly tied to worsening heart structure, function

February 10, 2017

Adults with acromegaly are more likely to have subclinical atherosclerosis and structural and functional damage to the heart compared with healthy adults, according to findings published in Endocrine Practice.

Güven Bari Cansu, MD, of Yunus Emre State Hospital in Eskiehir, Turkey, and colleagues evaluated 53 adults with acromegaly and 22 age- and sex-matched healthy controls to determine markers of subclinical atherosclerosis and evaluate heart structure and functioning. Researchers compared carotid intima-media thickness, pulse wave velocity and echocardiographic data between participants with and without acromegaly.
