PURPOSE: Visceral adiposity is associated with increased proinflammatory cytokine and end organ damage. Some reported abdominal adiposity might increase mortality in patients with septic shock. Nonetheless, little is known about the impact of intrathoracic fat. Therefore, we conducted this study to determine the association between intrathoracic adiposity and mortality of septic shock.
