Adults with Down syndrome (DS) residing in large institutional settings possess low levels of atherosclerosis. The purpose of this study was to determine whether community-residing adults with DS possess less atherosclerosis than adults without DS. The second purpose was to examine the relation between cardiovascular disease risk factors and intima-media thickness (IMT), a measure of atherosclerosis, in patients with DS. B-mode images of the left common carotid artery were collected to assess… CONTINUE READING
