BACKGROUND Noninvasive assessment of intima-media thickness (IMT) is widely used in observational studies and trials as an intermediate or proxy end point for cardiovascular disease. However, data showing that IMT predicts cardiovascular disease are limited. We studied whether common carotid IMT is related to future stroke and myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS We used a nested case-control approach among 7983 subjects aged > or =55 years participating in the Rotterdam Study. At… CONTINUE READING
