Increased Epicardial Adipose Tissue is Associated with the Extent of Aortic Dissection
(Digital Commons Bepress, 2020)
Background: Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a biologically active organ that has endocrine and paracrine functions. Endothelial dysfunction, systemic, and local inflammatory response, due to bio-active molecules produced ...
Increased epicardial fat tissue thickness predicts advanced interatrial block among hypertensive patients
(Churchill Livingstone Inc Medical Publishers, 2020)
Background: Recent studies demonstrated that epicardial fat tissue (EFT) was associated with prevalent AF and recurrences following the catheter ablation. We evaluated the value of EFT for the prediction of advanced ...
