Table 2 Ultrasonographic PRFT and OARI measurement values in HIV-1 patients receiving HAART

From: Ultrasound-assessed perirenal fat is related to increased ophthalmic artery resistance index in HIV-1 patients

Characteristic A (n = 88) B (n = 38) C (n = 50) p-value
PRFT 5.1 ± 3 8.1 ± 2.3 3.2 ± 0.9 < 0.0001*
OARI 0.70 ± 0.04 0.73 ± 0.04 0.69 ± 0.03 < 0.001**
  1. A, all HIV+ patients; B, HIV+ patients with visceral obesity; C, HIV+ patients without visceral obesity; PRFT, perirenal fat thickness; OARI, ophthalmic artery resistance index. All data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. * B vs C; ** B vs C. A p-value of < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.
