Özet

Background: Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a metabolically active fat depot. Studies have investigated the effect of EAT thickness on outcomes of radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, data on the relationship between EAT thickness and outcome of cryoballoon-based pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) are lacking.
