Abstract

Aim. To determine borderline values of intima-media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid arteries (CCA) in Moscow sitizens without clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis.
Material and methods. A total of 885 (277 males and 608 females) Moscow sitizens aged 20-79 years free of clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis participated in population-based epidemiological trial. CCA IMT was measured at ultrasonic scanning of the carotid arteries in high-resolution regimen.
Results. The trial provided data on variability of CCA IMT borderline values in different age groups of adult Moscow metaethnic population without clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis with gender reference. Quartile distribution of CCA IMT values enabled primary evaluation of predisposition of the population studied to atherosclerosis.
Conclusion. This pilot study is the first to give Russian data on variability of population borderline values of CCA IMT obtained in the study of a representative sample. Russian data give additional material to European geographic gradiet CCA IMT and allow more accurate ultrasonographic identification of predisposition to atherosclerosis in persons with silent disease.
