.
A historical cohort study was conducted on 143 patients, 40 to 87 years old, admitted for coronary angiography. The patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography and measurement of epicardial fat thickness in parasternal long-axis view at end-systole for 3 cardiac cycles. Both procedures were performed within a week before performing coronary angiography.
.
Conclusion
Epicardial fat thickness equal to or more than 7 mm may identify an individual with higher probability of having coronary atherosclerosis.
