This study evaluated whether IgG anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) titre and traditional risk factors for atherosclerosis bore any relationship to the intima media thickness (IMT) of carotid arteries of patients with idiopathic antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL). IMT was assessed by high-resolution sonography at the common carotid, carotid bifurcation and internal carotid in 42 (13 male, 29 female, mean age 31+/-10 years) aPL subjects, 29 with primary thrombotic antiphospholipid syndrome and 13… CONTINUE READING
