Özet

Introduction: Data regarding cardiovascular risk in patients with non-functional adrenal incidentaloma (NFAI) are limited. The objectives of this study are to investigate markers of subclinical cardiovascular disease like carotid intima media thickness (CIMT), pulse wave velocity (PWV), augmentation index (AIx), soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L) and leptin levels in NFAI patients without traditional cardiovascular risk factors and healthy control group.
