Carotid Intima Media Thickness as a Surrogate Marker of Atherosclerosis and Cardiovascular Burden in Hypertensive Subjects: Relevance and Implications

Abstract

Carotid Intima Media Thickness as a Surrogate Marker of Atherosclerosis and Cardiovascular Burden in Hypertensive Subjects: Relevance and Implications

The availability of surrogate markers of severity of atherosclerosis is essential to monitor and prevent cardiovascular morbidity associated with atherosclerosis. Carotid intima media thickness (c-IMT)) is a marker of atherosclerosis. We aimed to compare the c-IMT of hypertensive subjects with their normotensive counterparts and associated demographic and echocardiographic correlates.
