Carotid ecodoppler and transesophageal echocardiography: complementary methods for evaluation of atherosclerosis?

Abstract

Methods: Sixty one patients (57.4% men, mean age 62.7 ± 14 years) were evaluated with CU and TEE with an interval inferior to one month. CIM was measured at the common carotid artery (CCA); CP was defined as a localizaed protrusion in the arterial lumen larger than 1.5 mm, in the CCA or the internal carotid, without uniform wall involvement. AIM was measured at the aortic arch; AP was defined as a hyperechogenic area with >2 mm of thickness.
