Abstract Background/AimTo evaluate and stratify early cardiovascular risk of transsexuals who underwent pharmacological and/or surgical gender reassignment. MethodsFifty‐six transsexuals were divided into two groups: group 1 – underwent gonadectomy (orchiectomy for transwomen and hystero‐annessiectomy for transmen); group 2 – hormone replacement therapy alone. All participants underwent carotid artery intima‐media thickness (C‐IMT) and flow‐mediated vasodilation (FMD) of brachial artery evaluations.
