Epicardial adipose tissue and idiopathic deep venous thrombosis: An association study
Mazzoccoli G et al. – Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) should be considered as strongly associated with Epicardial fat (EpiF) thickness. Advancing age (with or without spontaneous DVT) is significantly associated with an increased EpiF thickness. The measurement of EpiF thickness, a valuable marker of cardio–metabolic risk, may represent a useful and reliable method to evaluate cardiovascular risk in patients with idiopathic deep phlebothrombosis.
