Background. The association of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) with coronary artery disease has been shown in previous studies. Furthermore, the relationship between EAT and acute coronary syndrome was studied recently. Herein, we investigated the relationship between EAT thickness and the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk score for non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and unstable angina pectoris (USAP).
