Sažetak
Intima media thickness of the carotid arteries was established as a marker of coronary atherosclerosis. Extension of coronary artery disease (CAD) quantified by use of Gensini score was considered as a valuable tool in CAD. The aim of this prospective study was to find the relations between arterial wall thickness and the diameter of common femoral artery and the severity of coronary atherosclerosis expressed by Gensini score. The methods: prospective study was performed on the group of patients suggering from angina pectoris who were submitted to femoral artery duplex study ( the investigation was performed on General Electrics GE Vivid 7) after coronary angiography. Conclusion: severity of coronary atherosclerosis as a part of the atherosclerotic process is connected to the atherosclerotic changes of peripheral arteries-expressed as femoral artery wall thickness. A significant positive correlation between coronary atherosclerosis expressed as Gensini score and peripheral arteries - femoral artery wall thickness was confirmed.
