Abstract

an increased intima media thickness (IMT) is an early indicator of the atherosclerotic process. We investigated the early effect of atorvastatin on the common carotid artery (CCA) and common femoral artery (CFA) IMT. the IMT was measured in the CCA and the CFA of hyperlipidaemic patient...read more
