Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Epicardial fat thickness (EFT) and chlamydia infection are independent cardiovascular risk factors in coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to evaluate the effect of coexistence of EFT and chlamydia infection on the presence and severity of CAD in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP).
