The relation between echocardiographic epicardial fat thickness and mitral annular calcification

In this study we aimed to investigate the EFT in patients with MAC.Methods: The study group consisted of 78 patients with MAC. An age, gender and body mass index matched control group consisted of 47 subjects who admitted to echocardiography laboratory due to suspicion of organic heart disease and eventually found to be free of MAC. We measured EFT in patients with MAC and control subjects.Results: EFT was significantly higher in patients with MAC than in control subjects (5.7 ±0.9 vs. 4.4±0.6 mm respectively; P

CONCLUSIONS: Both Martin and Sampson LDL-C estimates displayed significant proportion of upward discordance with reclassification to higher LDL-C categories compared to Friedewald formula, particularly in patients with elevated triglycerides and low LDL-C, a population in whom more accurate estimation of LDL-C is required. Further studies are warranted to validate the recently developed Sampson equation with comparison to Martin method that tended to more significantly overestimate LDL-C.
