Aims and background are to ascertain whether Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin patients are more affected by atherosclerotic process. We studied 96 patients during a period of 3 years (2003-2007). Patients were assessed in the first year soon after receiving radiotherapy and chemotherapy and then reassessed in the third year. All the cases underwent echo-colour Doppler of the carotid axis, and the intima-media thickness (IMT) was measured. When the two time points were compared, the IMT was greater in… CONTINUE READING
