Abstract

SUMMARY AT A GLANCEMesenteric fat thickness is a major determinant of metabolic syndrome with an odds ratio of 5.48 (95% CI: 1.5–20.0) for 1 cm increase of mesenteric fat thickness after adjustment for confounding factors including Apnoea–Hypopnoea Index. Visceral fat may play a key role in the link between OSA and metabolic syndrome.See Editorial, page 408
