Table 4 Correlations between epicardial adipose tissue thickness and degree of cardiac fibrosis in patients with myocardial infarctions

From: Relationships between epicardial adipose tissue thickness and adipo-fibrokine indicator profiles post-myocardial infarction

Parameter lEAT rEAT
% fibrosis in the patients without visceral obesity r = 0.34; p = 0.02 r = 0.27; p = 0.03
% fibrosis in the patients with visceral obesity r = 0.51; p = 0.02 r = 0.51; p = 0.04
  1. r, correlation coefficient; lEAT, layer of the adipose tissue measured at the level of the outer edge of the myocardium to the visceral pericardial sheet along the posterior wall of the left ventricle; rEAT layer of the adipose tissue measured at the level of the outer edge of the myocardium to the visceral pericardial sheet along the posterior wall of the right ventricle
