Uno de los elementos destacados de este número de REVISTA ESPAÑOLA DE CARDIOLOGÍA es la presentación de la investigación original de Martínez- Gómez et al, en la que se examinan las asociaciones del tiempo de sedentarismo evaluado objetivamente (demasiado tiempo estando sentado, a diferencia de demasiado poco ejercicio) y de la cantidad de grasa corporal con los factores de riesgo cardiovascular en una submuestra de 201 adolescentes participantes en el estudio Madrid AFINOS. Las características científicas clave de su investigación son la medición objetiva del movimiento ambulatorio (y de la ausencia de movimiento) con el empleo de acelerómetros, con los que se obtuvo el tiempo empleado en una conducta sedentaria. En su estudio, los autores realizaron mediciones antropométricas cuidadosas para determinar la adiposidad central y general, y determinaron una serie de biomarcadores del riesgo cardiovascular. En sus resultados describen asociaciones significativas entre el tiempo empleado en una conducta sedentaria o la grasa corporal y los biomarcadores del riesgo cardiovascular en este grupo de individuos jóvenes, de 13 a 16 años de edad.

A highlight of this issue of Revista Española de Cardiología is the report of original research by Martínez-Gómez et al,1 in which they examine the associations of objectively assessed sedentary time (too much sitting, as distinct from too little exercise) and body fatness with cardiovascular risk factors in a subsample of 201 adolescent participants of the Madrid AFINOS study. The key scientific features of their investigation are the objective measurement of ambulatory movement (and non-movement) using accelerometers, from which they derive the amount of time spent sedentary. In their study, they conducted careful anthropometric measurements to determine central and overall adiposity, and measured a range of biomarkers of cardiovascular risk. They report significant associations of time spent sedentary and body fatness with biomarkers of cardiovascular risk in this group of young people aged 13 to 16 years.
