Although cardiovascular risk factors have been strongly linked to carotid intimal-media thickness, their association with plaque progression towards instability is poorly understood. We evaluated a large database of endarterectomy specimens removed from symptomatic and asymptomatic patients to determine the correlation between major cardiovascular risk factors and carotid plaque morphology.

Abstract

Although cardiovascular risk factors have been strongly linked to carotid intimal-media thickness, their association with plaque progression towards instability is poorly understood. We evaluated a large database of endarterectomy specimens removed from symptomatic and asymptomatic patients to determine the correlation between major cardiovascular risk factors and carotid plaque morphology.
