Atherosclerosis in patients with endometriosis
Endometriosis refers to endometrial tissue implantation including stromal and epithelial tissue outside the uterus. It is an often painful disorder that involves the ovaries and fallopian tubes. The association between endometriosis and atherosclerosis is interesting. The present study was conducted to assess the Doppler findings of the carotid artery in patients with and without endometriosis. In this study that included 30 patients with endometriosis and 30 control subjects, all patients underwent carotid ultrasonography, and the measurement of intima-media thickness (IMT) was done in the distal common carotid artery, proximal to the origin of the carotid bulb, and finally, we compare the IMT in two groups. This study revealed that there are no differences in the IMT between patients with and without Endometriosis.
