Recently, many studies indicate that epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) volume closely associates with progression of coronary atherosclerosis as well as increased prevalence of coronary artery disease. Segmentation of the epicardium is an important step for estimation of EAT volume. There are two main challenges facing automatic epicardium segmentation. One is that the epicardium exists as a very thin line and the contrast with the surrounding adipose tissue, blood vessels, and the heart is low. T...

Aim/Introduction Diabetes and obesity are important health and economic concerns. We investigated the influence of obesity on diabetes control, the annual medical expenditures, and medications in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes who were relatively lean in comparison to those in Western countries. Materials and Methods A total of 402 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes were enrolled and their annual medical expenditures investigated. Obesity was defined as body mass index over 25 kg/m2,...

OBJECTIVE Diabetes is associated with high risk of cardiovascular (CV) events, particularly in patients with dyslipidemia and diabetic complications. We investigated the incidence of CV events with intensive or standard lipid-lowering therapy in patients with hypercholesterolemia, diabetic retinopathy, and no history of coronary artery disease (treat-to-target approach). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In this multicenter, prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded end point study, eligible patien...

To examine differential improvements among cardiovascular risk factors in response to treatment with ipragliflozin in Japanese type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients, we conducted a pooled analysis of six randomized, double-blind trials of Japanese T2DM patients who received ipragliflozin 50 mg/day or placebo and had patient-level data for cardiometabolic risk parameters. Risk factors included glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), body weight, homeostatic model assessment for insulin resistance and bet...

Summary Background Limited evidence suggests that multifactorial interventions for control of glucose, blood pressure, and lipids reduce macrovascular complications and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes. However, safe and effective treatment targets for these risk factors have not been determined for such interventions. Methods In this multicentre, open-label, randomised, parallel-group trial, undertaken at 81 clinical sites in Japan, we randomly assigned (1:1) patients with type 2 diab...
