Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metabolic (dysfunction) associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events, regardless of traditional risk factors, such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, and increased BMI. The recent rename of the syndrome will serve in removing any stigma associated with the previously used term (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) and focus on the significance of excess (abdominal) visceral fat as the main factor of another lasting pandemic. Recently, COVID-19 brought once again into the spotlight the harmful effect of high BMI. Visceral fat should therefore be a central target for future interventions in all metabolic disease.

In this special issue, we are looking for contributions (original work, case series and/or systematic reviews/meta-analyses) highlighting the importance of liver-heart-fat interaction and any other relevant pathophysiology both at a level of basic or clinical science.
