OBJECTIVE Carotid intima-media thickness is a well established non-invasive surrogate marker of cardiovascular disease, however there is evidence that structural modification of the arterial adventitia also accompanies cardiovascular risk factors and might be involved causally in atherosclerosis. We sought to determine the relative contributions of the intima-media and adventitia to variation in ultrasound and magnetic resonance derived measures of carotid wall thickness. METHODS Carotid… CONTINUE READING
