Table 2 Correlation between CCA resistance index with CCA intima-media thickness and plaque volume

From: Adipokines, inflammation, insulin resistance, and carotid atherosclerosis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

  r P value
Mean CCA intima-media thickness 0.193 0.007*
Maximum CCA intima-media thickness 0.164 0.023*
Total plaque volume 0.167 0.021*
  1. CCA, common carotid artery. *P <0.05 after adjustment for conventional cardiovascular risk factors including sex, body mass index, smoking, systolic blood pressure, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
