BACKGROUND Structural alterations in the microcirculation may be considered an important mechanism of organ damage. An increased tunica media to internal lumen ratio of subcutaneous small-resistance arteries (M:L) may predict the development of cardiovascular events in a high-risk population. However, it is not known whether structural alterations of small arteries may also predict major cardiovascular events. METHODS Three hundred three subjects were included in the present study. There were… CONTINUE READING
