  • BACKGROUND Numerous reports have shown that both carotid artery ultrasound (carotid US) findings and ankle-brachial index (ABI) are associated with the prevalence of coronary artery disease. The relationship between carotid US findings and ABI and the complexity of coronary artery disease (as measured by SYNTAX [SX] score), was evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS The subjects included 496 consecutive patients who underwent carotid US, ABI analysis and initial coronary angiography. The mean common… CONTINUE READING
