The most common cause of death in patients with NAFLD(Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) is CAD(Coronary Artery Disease). NAFLD patients have 65% more mortality than general population. The aim of the investigators study is to diagnose early coronary artery disease in NAFLD patient by measuring of PLA2. The investigators expect that PLA2 will higher in patients with patients with combination of CAD, unstable plaque and NAFLD.
Background: The most common cause of death in patients with NAFLD(Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) is CAD(Coronary Artery Disease). NAFLD patients have 65% more mortality than general population. The aim of our study is to diagnose early coronary artery disease in NAFLD patient by measuring of PLA2.
Methods: 60 patients with chest pain and low to intermediate risk for coronary events will undergo Cardiac CT and blood test measurement of enzyme PLA2, markers of inflammation: CRP, MDA(Malondialdehide), Paraoxonase, FFA(Free Fatty Acids), TG(Triglycerids) will performed.
CAD is defined as a stenosis of more than 50% in at least one major coronary artery, unstable plaque defined as low attenuated plaque <30HU and fatty liver defined as difference in liver and spleen attenuation value -10HU by using CT.
Expected results : we expect that PLA2 will higher in patients with patients with combination of CAD, unstable plaque and NAFLD.

Fatty liver finding without excessive ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION.
Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells resulting in a yellow-colored liver. The abnormal lipid accumulation is usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES, either as a single large droplet or multiple small droplets. Fatty liver is caused by an imbalance in the metabolism of FATTY ACIDS.
Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells that is due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. The fatty changes in the alcoholic fatty liver may be reversible, depending on the amounts of TRIGLYCERIDES accumulated.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
A perilipin that functions in LIPOGENESIS; LIPOLYSIS; and fatty acid oxidation in BROWN ADIPOSE TISSUE; heart, liver, and skeletal muscle. It recruits MITOCHONDRIA to the surface of LIPID DROPLETS where it functions in both the storage of fatty acids as TRIGLYCERIDES, and their release for mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation in response to metabolic needs.
