Assessment of epicardial adipose tissue and carotid/femoral intima media thickness in insulin resistance.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome is a combination of multiple cardiovascular (CV) risk factors including insulin resistance (IR). Carotid, femoral intima media thickness (IMT), and epicardial fat thickness (EFT) are considered as novel cardiometabolic risk factors. We aimed to test the hypothesis that carotid, femoral IMT, and EFT are increased in patients… (More)
