Target: Evaluation of relation of lipid, obesity parameters and epicardial fat (EF) in relation to coronarographical finding.
Methods: We examined 80 patients (43 males, 37 females) indicated for coronarographical examination, we specified
obesity, laboratory parameters and we echocardiographically measured EF thickness. The set was divided into group
with coronarographically proven stenoses (withCS) and a group without a finding of defined stenoses (withoutCS).
Results: The differences in EF thickness in set withCS/withoutCS were greater in males than in females. Patients in
withCS group had greater HOMA-IR (homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance) and AIP (atherogenic index
of plasma) than patients in withouCS group.
Conclusion: Females in withCS group had greater visceral fat (VF) than EF compared to females in withoutCS group.
Males in withCS group had wider EF compared to withoutCS group, and the value of VF was almost identical in both
groups. EF in females correlated with TAG (triacylglycerols) and low HDL chol. (high density lipoprotein cholesterol),
in males with glycaemia and HOMA-IR.
