Objective: During the postmenopausal period, visceral fat tissue is responsible not only for increased cardiometabolic risk, but also for endocrine function leading to increased endometrial thickness (ET). The current study aimed to 1) determine the predictive value of ultrasonographic visceral fat thickness (VFT) and the visceral adiposity index (VAI), which is defined as «an indicator of visceral adipose function,» for the prediction of an ET>5 mm and 2) to search for a correlation between these two measures.
