  • Epicardial fat thickness releases numerous markers which play an important role in MetS. In addition, MetS may be associated with oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, and atherosclerosis. Various studies highlighted the importance of EFT in line with inflammatory status in cardiovascular diseases. EFT values are linked to abdominal visceral adiposity and subclinical atherosclerosis, which seems to have high capacity of proinflammatory activity. No matter how EFT is measured, it gives clinicians important data for assessing patients inflammatory status
