Özet

Objective: Atherosclerotic heart diseases are less frequently seen in patients with Gilbert's syndrome (GS). We aimed to investigate whether serum adiponectin (APN) and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness have an effect beside the antioxidant effect of bilirubin in lowering the incidence of the atherosclerotic process.
