Abstract

AIM: To evaluate carotid intima-media thickening (IMT)and plaques, gallstone disease (GD) and fatty liver (FL)as a function of age.METHODS: In 449 subjects, FL and carotid diseasewere assessed ultrasonographically. In a subgroup of65/449 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD), carotid disease, GD and associated factorswere determined.RESULTS: FL of unspecifi ed etiology was more commonin younger and GD in older individuals. FL subjectshad an increased prevalence of IMT and a decreasedprevalence of plaques and manifested carotid diseaseearlier. Plaques were more common in subjects with GD.Age was an independent predictor of carotid diseaseoutcome and FL was a protective factor for plaques. InNAFLD, there was an inverse correlation between bodyweight and age and the latter independently predictedcarotid fi ndings.CONCLUSION: Cardiovascular risk in patients with FLand NAFLD needs to be assessed as a function of ageand body weight.
