Background: A possible link between periodontal pathogenic bacteria and atherosclerosis may exist based on the inflammatory mechanisms initiated by bacteria found in periodontal lesions. Our aim was to investigate the presence of DNA originating from T. denticola, C. rectus, T. forsythia, and P. gingivalis in the vascular tissue specimens obtained from patients who underwent surgery for arteriosclerotic vascular disease in this study.
