a Untreated control patients not on statins (n = 50) with low visceral adipose tissue/subcutaneous adipose tissue (VAT/SAT) (n = 28) have higher low-density lipoprotein (LDL) (median and interquartile range, mg/dL) than patients with high VAT/SAT (n = 22) (p = 0.006). b Statin-treated patients (n = 23) have low LDL regardless of VAT/SAT category (p value not significant). c Control untreated patients not on statins with low VAT/SAT (n = 28) have longer survival compared to patients with high VAT/SAT (n = 22) (p = 0.019). d In statin-treated patients (n = 23) there is no difference in survival between VAT/SAT categories (p value not significant)
