Özet

BACKGROUND: Visceral adiposity plays an important role in the pathogenesis of obesity related hypertension. Measurement of perinephric adipose tissue (PNAT) thickness has not been studied yet. We aimed to define the relation of PNAT with hypertension, and to investigate its correlations with apelin and C-reactive protein.
