Carotid artery disease and the risk of ischaemic stroke and coronary vascular events.
Information on the presence and extent of carotid arterial wall disease has significant prognostic value. Carotid artery stiffness, intima-media thickness, and early plaque formation are potentially useful predictors of the risk of both ischaemic stroke and coronary heart disease in asymptomatic populations. Early carotid arterial wall disease is also a useful predictor of coronary artery disease on angiography and subsequent coronary vascular events in populations at risk of coronary heart d...Expand abstract
