The presence of periodontal disease (PD) in subjects affected by the metabolic syndrome (MetS) may affect their risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the systemic impact of PD in MetS, by assessing measures of sub-clinical atherosclerosis and left ventricular mass and geometry.

Abstract

The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the systemic impact of PD in MetS, by assessing measures of sub-clinical atherosclerosis and left ventricular mass and geometry.
