Risk factors for the progression of carotid intima-media thickness over a 16-year follow-up period: the Malmö Diet and Cancer Study

Atherosclerosis

Mar 10, 2015

M RosvallG Engström

Abstract

To evaluate the progression of carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in the common carotid artery (CCA) and the bifurcation over a mean follow-up of 16 years in relation to cardiovascular risk factors. The study population included 3426 middle-aged Swedish men and women participating in ...read more
