Özet

Aim. The purpose of this work was to evaluate epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), and flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients using ultrasonographic methods. Interrelationships between these three parameters in RA patients were also investigated.
