Atherosclerosis is the leading underlying pathologic process that results in cardiovascular diseases, which represents the main cause of death and disability in the world. The atherosclerotic process is a complex degenerative condition mainly affecting the medium- and large-size arteries, which begins in childhood and may remain unnoticed during decades. The intima-media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid artery (CCA) has emerged as one of the most powerful tool for the evaluation of… CONTINUE READING
