Abstract

Lipoedema is a chronic disorder that is characterised by a symmetric, deforming, hyperplasia of the subcutaneous adipose tissue, and is associated with haematomas and pain. It mainly affects women after puberty, is usually familial and is influence by hormones. Untreated, the lipoedema can progress to lymphoedema, and has been associated with the increase in aortic stiffness. The mechanical rotation of the left ventricle (LV) has an important role in normal circulation. In normal circumstances, the base of the LV rotates clockwise, while the LV apex rotates in the opposite direction, leading to a movement like wringing a towel, called LV twist. In the present case, using three-dimension speckle-tracking echocardiography, an LV twist is observed, showing an LV apex in the clockwise direction and the anti-clockwise rotation of the LV base in a patient with clinical characteristics of lipoedema.
