Abstract

Objectives: This study was conducted to define the frequency of internal carotid stenosis in African American patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD). Methods: We recruited 101 African American patients with IHD from a university medical center for carotid duplex examination. Results: The frequency of >30%, >50%, and >70% stenosis was 21%, 11%, and 5%, respectively. Age >60 years (21% vs 3%, P < .01) and diabetes mellitus (22% vs 5%, P < .01) were predictors of unilateral stenosis of >50% and remained significant on multivariate testing. Conclusion: African American patients with established IHD have higher rates of extracranial carotid stenosis than community dwelling African American subjects and comparable rates with other populations.
