Quisiera conocer la conducta de los colegas al momento de evaluar a
pacientes con problemas cardiovasculares, la indicacion de estudios de
ecocardio y duplex carotideo simultaneamente, muchas veces hemos visto
que la unica indicacion de estudios carotideos son los que presentan
accidentes cerebrovasculares; nosotros de rutina realizamos duplex
carotideos en hipertensos,o en otras cardiopatas y hemos conseguido una
prevalencia alta de lesiones , y en un 10-30 % lesiones significativas
asintomaticas.

I would like to know about management of colleagues at the moment of assessing patients with CV
problems, indication of echocardiography and carotid duplex studies simultaneously. We have
seen many times that the only indication of carotid studies are in those who present strokes.
We carry out routinely carotid duplex in hypertensive, or in other heart diseases, and we have
achieved a high prevalence of injuries, and in 10-30% significant asymptomatic injuries.
