Özet

Background Ascending aortic aneurysm is an uncommon condition with lethal consequences. Lately, epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is acknowledged as an organ with important effects on the vascular system. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether EAT, cardiovascular risk factors, and vascular structure and functions are independently related to ascending aortic dilatation.
