BACKGROUND Recent attempts to identify cardiovascular risk factors affecting early-stage carotid atherosclerosis, measured by ultrasonographically assessed intima-media thickness, have been inconclusive. OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between traditional cardiovascular risk factors and intima-media thickness. METHODS Ultrasonic evaluation of the intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery was included in the 5-year follow-up examination of participants of the Edinburgh Artery… CONTINUE READING
