Özet

Thoracic peri-aortic fat tissue (PFT) is considered as a metabolically active organ in atherosclerosis. Malnutrition, inflammation and atherosclerosis/calcification (MIAC) are the most commonly encountered risk factors of cardiovascular disease in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. Calcification of the aorta was found to be an important cardiovascular risk marker predicting future events, morbidity and mortality in this population. We aimed to investigate the relationship between PFT, MIAC syndrome and thoracic aortic calcification (TAC) in ESRD patients.
