BACKGROUND An increase of carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) has been demonstrated to be associated in many studies with the subsequent risk of cardio- and cerebrovascular events, but the threshold level of CIMT for an increased risk at different ages remains uncertain. OBJECTIVES We aimed at establishing optimal reference limits associated with a definite increased vascular risk in the general population. METHODS A cohort of 2580 subjects was enrolled in a population-based cross… CONTINUE READING
