Abstract

Fifty patients with coronary artery disease admitted to the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), Dhaka were screened for presence of carotid atherosclerosis by duplex ultrasound study during the period of July 98 to Aug 99. Out of 50 patients 34 patients (68%) had carotid lesions and normal carotids found in 16 patients (32%). Age range of patients with and without carotid lesions were 56 ± 5.39 yrs and 47± 7.91 yrs respectively. Out of 34 patients, 30 were male (88.24%) and 4 were female (11.76%). Twenty nine patients (85.29%) were smokers, 22 patients (64.7%) were hypertensive and 9 patients (26.47%) were diabetic. Dyslipidaemia was found in 16 patients (47.06%) and a history of transient ischaemic attack (TIA) was found in 10 patients (29.41%). A coexistent CAD on coronary angiography (CAG) was found in 31 patients (91.17%). (University Heart Journal 2007; 3 : 63-64)
