Echogenic carotid plaques are associated with aortic arterial stiffness in subjects with subclinical carotid atherosclerosis.

Abstract

A better understanding of the interrelationships between the structure and function of the large arteries would lead to optimize cardiovascular disease prevention strategies. In this study, we investigated the relationships of aortic arterial stiffness assessed by carotid-femoral pulse-wave velocity (PWV), with carotid plaque echogenicity assessed by B-mode… (More)
