Özet

Aim: Carotid artery intima media thickness (CA-IMT) measurement has been shown to be a safe and reproducible method to assess severity of atherosclerosis. The association between nephrosclerosis and systemic atherosclerosis is not clear. In this study, we investigated the association between CA-IMT and nephrosclerosis in a group of kidney transplant donors.
