From: The relationship between epicardial adipose tissue and coronary artery stenosis by sex and menopausal status in patients with suspected angina

  1. The values were presented as mean ± standard deviation in the comparison between patients with and without CAS before adjustment and estimated marginal mean ± standard error presented for the values in the comparison between patients with and without CAS after adjustment
  2. EAT epicardial adipose tissue, CAS coronary artery stenosis, SE standard error
  3. *P value after adjustment factors that are related with EAT thickness, like age, diabetes, hypertension, and body mass index
