Table 3 Determinants of thicker carotid IMT and carotid plaque formation in the Logistic regression model

From: Prehypertension is associated with increased carotid atherosclerotic plaque in the community population of Southern China

  1. Thicker carotid IMT: upper quintile value of IMT.
  2. IMT, intima-media thickness; OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; NS, non-significant.
