Carotid plaque, intima-media thickness, and incident aortic stenosis: a prospective cohort study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aortic stenosis (AS) shares risk factors with atherosclerotic vascular disease. Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and plaque may reflect the cumulative damage from exposure to different atherosclerotic risk factors. We examined the relationship of carotid IMT and plaque with incident AS in a prospective population-based study.
