          Abstract

          Se hizo una revisión del diagnóstico precoz de arteriosclerosis estudiando el grosor íntima-media carotídea y su correlación con la enfermedad coronaria. Se realizó un recuento detallado de la técnica que se emplea en el Instituto de Cardiología y Cirugía Vascular. Se expresaron los resultados obtenidos al dividir en cuartiles el grosor íntima-media de personas sanas y pacientes con diversas enfermedades cardiovasculares. Se establecieron los grupos de riesgo. Se concluyó que la medida es incruenta, reproducible y permite establecer un pronóstico en condiciones subclínicas y clínicas de aterosclerosis.

          Translated abstract

          A review of the early diagnosis of atherosclerosis was made by studying the carotid intima-media thickness and its correlation with the coronary artery disease. A detailed account of the technique used at the Institute of Cardiology and Vascular Surgery was made. The results obtained on dividing into quartiles the intima media thickness from healthy persons and from patients with diverse cardiovascular diseases were shown. The risk groups were established. It was concluded that the measure is non-invasive, reproducible and that it allows to have a prognosis under subclinical and clinical conditions of atherosclerosis.
