Objective: The measurement of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) sonographically is reported to be related with both obesity and insulin resistance. Hepatic steatosis is one of the best known other coincidence with obesity. We aimed to evaluate the relationships between EAT thickness, hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance in obese patients.Methods: Obese 63 subjects were enrolled into the study. Local ethical committee approval was obtained. Patients wer...
