OBJECTIVE: To investigate the tissue factor (TF) pathway in clinical obesity and associated metabolic syndrome.

RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Thirty-seven morbidly obese patients (4 men; BMI, 48 +/- 7 kg/m(2); range, 42 to 53 kg/m(2)), undergoing elective gastroplasty for the induction of weight loss, were examined for hemostatic, metabolic, and inflammatory parameters at baseline and 14 +/- 5 months postoperatively.

RESULTS: Weight loss significantly reduced circulating plasma TF (314 +/- 181 vs. 235 +/- 113 pg/mL, p = 0.04), coagulation factor VII (130 +/- 22% vs. 113 +/- 19%, p = 0.023), and prothrombin fragment F1.2 (2.4 +/- 3.4 vs. 1.14 +/- 1.1 nM, p = 0.04) and normalized glucose metabolism in 50% of obese patients preoperatively classified as diabetic or of impaired glucose tolerance. The postoperative decrease in plasma TF correlated with the decrease of F1.2 (r = 0.56; p = 0.005), a marker of in vivo thrombin formation. In subgroup analysis stratified by preoperative glucose tolerance, baseline circulating TF (402.6 +/- 141.6 vs. 176.2 +/- 58.2, p < 0.001) and TF decrease after gastroplasty (DeltaTF: 164.7 +/- 51.4 vs. -81 +/- 31 pg/mL, p = 0.02) were significantly higher in obese patients with impaired glucose tolerance than in patients with normal glucose tolerance.

DISCUSSION: Procoagulant TF is significantly reduced with weight loss and may contribute to a reduction in cardiovascular risk associated with obesity.
