Sex differences in carotid bifurcation anatomy and the distribution of atherosclerotic plaque.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Plaque formation at arterial bifurcations depends on vessel anatomy, particularly the relative sizes of the branches, and the ratio of the outflow to inflow area. The facts that carotid plaque is more common in men and that carotid bruits in the absence of stenosis are more frequent in women raise the possibility that there are sex differences in carotid bifurcation anatomy. We studied 5395 angiograms from the European Carotid Surgery Trial. METHODS: To minimize second...
