The aim of this study was to assess the role of lipolysis of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) in cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI). We used a rat model of MI with or without EAT removal to study the effects of EAT lipolysis on cardiovascular function. Echocardiography and cardiac catheterization were used to determine cardiac function, and infarct size and histopathology specimens were analyzed in postmortem sections. Inflammatory responses were evaluated via flow cytometry and… CONTINUE READING
