  • To begin with, it must be noted that the normal coronary intima is not a single-layer endothelium covering a thin acellular compartment, as claimed in most publications, but always appears as a multi-layer cellular compartment, or diffuse intimal thickening (DIT), in which cells are arranged in many layers.

  • BACKGROUND: While recent reports suggest that both flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) in the brachial artery (BA), endothelium-dependent vasodilatation, and intima media thickness (IMT) in the carotid artery correlate with the extent of coronary artery disease (CAD), it is not clear which modality is a better predictor for CAD severity and whether either of these modalities are superior to conventional ST-segment depression in exercise stress electrocardiogram (ECG).

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) is a reliable sensitive marker of subclinical atherosclerosis [ 1 - 3 ] and an independent predictor of cardiovascular events and target organ damage [ 3 , 4 ]. (omicsonline.org)
