Endothelial dysfunction and increased intima–media thickness (IMT) have been found in obese patients. Both regional fat distribution and liver steatosis may influence these markers of subclinical atherosclerosis. We sought to determine the interrelationships of endothelial function, carotid IMT, visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue accumulation, and liver steatosis in severely obese subjects. In 64 severely obese patients (BMI 42.3±4.3 kg/m²), we determined (i) endothelial function as flow‐mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery,(ii) …
