The height (thickness) of epicardial fat has been measured in histological slides at 10 standard "measuring points" in 200 human hearts. The 172 male and 28 female hearts were obtained from unselected autopsy material of the Institut of Pathology of the hospital groups "Bergmannsheil" in Bochum. The thickness of the epicardial fat on the surface of the right ventricle varies in histological paraffin slides between 0 and 13.6 mm. The mean of all 2,000 measurements is 2.19 mm, the median 1.7 mm… CONTINUE READING
