Transthoracic echocardiography of all patients was undertaken by the same experienced physician before coronary artery angiography examination. The ultrasonography system was Philips 7500 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). The transducer frequency was 3.5 MHz. The apical four-chamber view, the parasternal long-axis, and short-axis view are the ideal views for measurement of the fat thickness.[6]According to experiments of our center, the preferred epicardial fat thickness was measured from a parasternal long-axis view on the right ventricular free wall (Fig. 1).

Como já demonstramos aqui (abaixo), a gordura epicárdica salta aos nossos olhos no exame de rotina. 

Por que não coletamos esse dado?
