Figure 1 Carotid intima-media thickness in the study groups. A: Carotid-intima media thickness (CIMT) in a cirrhotic patient without esophageal varices (EVs) (0.72 mm); B: CIMT in a cirrhotic patient with EVs (1.42 mm); C: CIMT in a healthy control subject (0.6 mm).

Figure 2 Correlation of liver stiffness with low-density lipoproteins/platelet count ratio (A) and very low-density lipoproteins (B). LS: Liver stiffness; LDL: Low-density lipoproteins; VLDL: Very low-density lipoproteins.

Figure 3 Receiver operating characteristic curve to detect cutoff values of carotid-intima media thickness and low-density lipoproteins/platelet count ratio. LDL: Low-density lipoproteins; CIMT: Carotid-intima media thickness; AUC: Area under the curve; ROC: Receiver operating characteristic.
