Diabetes e Espessura da Carótida
The predictive value for coronary events was similar for carotid IMT and Framingham score as assessed by area under the receiver operating characteristic curves. An improvement in risk prediction was conferred by addition of carotid IMT in a Cox model (global χ2 increased from 14.1 to 18.1, P = 0.035).
Incremental Predictive Value of Carotid Ultrasonography in the Assessment of Coronary Risk in a Cohort of Asymptomatic Type 2 Diabetic Subjects
Diabetes Care May 2005 vol. 28 no. 5 1158-1162
CONCLUSIONS —This prospective study confirms that carotid IMT is a marker of cardiovascular risk in this type 2 diabetic cohort, establishes that carotid IMT provides a similar predictive value for coronary events than Framingham score, and suggests that the combination of these two indexes significantly improves risk prediction for these patients.
O ARTIGO ACIMA COMPROVA, SIMPLESMENTE, QUE EM DIABÉTICOS, A ESPESSURA DA CARÓTIDA E O ESCORE DE FRAMINHGHAM TEM O MESMO VALOR. E JUNTOS SÃO MELHORES AINDA.
