Echocardiographic determination of epicardial adipose tissue in healthy bonnet macaques.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Nonhuman primates have served as models for human cardiovascular (CV) and metabolic diseases. Recently, echocardiographic measurement of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness has been shown to be a reliable marker of visceral adiposity, and greater EAT is associated with increased CV risk, left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, and metabolic… (More)
