An increased cardiovascular risk has been described in patients (pts) with adrenal incidentaloma (AI), similarly to pts with overt CushingÂ’s syndrome (CS). Some echocardiographic abnormalities and alterations in adipokine secretion involved in insulin resistance, inflammation and atherosclerosis have been reported in pts with CS. In this study the possible correlation between echocardiographic parameters and adipokine levels in pts with AI was evaluated.<p class="abst...

Introduction: Bone marrow fat is considered a risk factor for osteoporosis and fragility fracture. It is not clear if bone marrow adiposity is increased in obesity and how it relates to other compartments of adipose tissue, in particular visceral adipose tissue (VAT), subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT).Aim: To evaluate bone marrow adiposity in obese as compared with normal weight women.Design: Tw...
