Conclusions Carotid EMT can be assessed by ultrasonography. It is physically distinct from IMT and provides additional information concerning the vascular changes associated with cardiovascular risk factors. As such, the measurement of EMT, in addition to IMT, may provide a more complete indication of the structural modification of the vasculature associated with cardiovascular risk factors than that obtained by the measurement of carotid IMT alone.

Adventícia: O marcador de risco esquecido
