OBJECTIVES Globally, and particularly in low- and middle-income countries, the prevalence of hypertension is increasing with a consequent rise in the burden of stroke. There is a need to identify biomarkers of stroke, which can be used to design stroke prevention programs in these populations. Sonography is an affordable and widely available imaging modality that is ideal for resource-poor countries. We conducted a case-control study to identify carotid sonographic parameters that may be… CONTINUE READING
