Abstract

Obesity in adults is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. An important role among these factors is played by some alterations in the mechanisms of coagulation. Changes in the fibrinolytic process are significant in obesity, although not always correlated with metabolic disorders involving lipid and glucose regulation (1, 2, 3, 4).
