Özet

Objective Carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) is a strong predictor of future vascular events. However, data for Turkish individuals are limited and the association between cardiometabolic risk factors and CIMT has not been studied before. Therefore, we sought to investigate the CIMT and cardiometabolic risk associates in a large cohort of Turkish adults.
