BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is little information on the distribution of atherosclerotic lesions of the extracranial carotid artery wall in free-living populations. The purpose of the present study was to describe the prevalence from 1987 through 1989 of extracranial carotid artery plaque and plaque with acoustic attenuation (shadowing) lesions in a general population of white and black adults from four US communities. METHODS B-mode ultrasound was used to characterize wall lesions in the… CONTINUE READING
