Results:

After multivariable adjustment, visceral adipose tissue was associated with cardiovascular disease (HR 1.44, 95% CI 1.08-1.92, p=0.01) and cancer (HR 1.43, 95% CI 1.12-1.84, p=0.005).

Conclusion:

Visceral adiposity is associated with incident cardiovascular disease and cancer after adjustment for clinical risk factors and generalized adiposity. These findings support the growing appreciation of a pathogenic role of ectopic fat.
