Session: MON 1-36-Adrenal Incidentaloma & Carcinoma
Poster Board MON-7
Aim: In this prospective study, we aimed to determine the effects of NFA on atherosclerosis.
Method: As the carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) is a valuable marker for evaluation the premature atherosclerosis, we compared CIMT of the 20 patient with NFA (group 1) with 18 healthy controls (group 2).
Results: Mean age of the subjects in group 1 was 53,3±7,0 and in group 2 was 50,27±11,32 years; the groups were matched in case of age, sex and blood pressure. Besides body mass indexes (BMI) and waist circumferences (WC) were not different between groups (BMI were 26,66±4,42 vs 27,48±4,90 kg/m2 in group 1 and in group 2; WC were 93,20±10,20 vs 93,38±9,56 cm in group 1 and group 2). When we compared CIMT values between groups, we found highly significant higher values in patients with NFA (right CIMT were 0,788±0,118 vs 0,532±0,100 and left CIMT were 0,786±0,082 vs 0,522±0,087, in group 1 vs group 2 respectively; p<0,0001).
Discussion: Although our study is limited in case of the study subjects and preliminary, these results are in favour of an accelarated premature atherosclerosis in patients with NFA.
