Background: Atherosclerosis is a systemic inflammatory vascular disorder, which can involves multiple arteries. Stroke and coronary artery disease remains the leading cause of mortality and morbidity due to atherosclerosis. Carotid and vertebral sonography can performed to measure the abnormality due to atherosclerosis.

Aim: To obtain carotid and vertebral sonography profile in coronary artery disease patients.
Methods: This was cross-sectional study used registry data from Neurosonology clinic at Cipto
Mangunkusumo Hospital from January to December 2020. Arteries profile were evaluate using carotid and vertebral sonography.

Results: There were 31 subjects with mean age of 62,5 ± 7,9 years. Stroke ischemic was found in 10 subjects (32,3%), most of them had vascular risk factor such as smoking in 20 subjects (64,5%) and hypertension in 9 subjects (29%). Thickening of intima media complex was found in 19 subjects (61,3%) with median was 1,1 mm (0,97 – 1,13), most of them occurred bilateral (41,9%) in carotid arteries. There were plaque in 20 subjects (64,5%) and stenosis in 2 subjects (6,5%) in carotid arteries. The median pulsatility index in carotid arteries and vertebral arteries were relatively high, CCA was 1,4 ± 0,28, ICA 1,08 (0,93 – 1,24) and VA 1,16 (1,01 – 1,35).

Conclusion: Carotid abnormalities in coronary artery disease such as intima media thickness, plaque, and stenosis. Both carotid and vertebral arteries had high pulsatility index which can figuring atherosclerosis. Carotid and vertebral sonography is important to detect early atherosclerosis in extracranial arteries which going to intracranial before they become symptomatic
