Ankle-Brachial Index and Neurologic Deterioration in Acute Ischemic Stroke.

Few studies have examined the relationship between abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) and short-term outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).

A case of left main coronary artery embolus further embolising to the left anterior descending artery.

Summary Coronary embolism is an uncommon cause of myocardial infarction. The usual source of a coronary embolus is an intracardiac thrombus or vegetation. Embolisation to the left main coronary artery...

Relationship between QT Interval Dispersion in Acute Stroke and Stroke Prognosis: A Systematic Review.

QT dispersion (QTd) has been proposed as an indirect electrocardiography (ECG) measure of heterogeneity of ventricular repolarization. The predictive value of QTd in acute stroke remains controversial...

Arterial stiffness and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke.

Arterial stiffness is a common change associated with aging and can be evaluated by measuring pulse wave velocity (PWV) between sites in the arterial tree, with the stiffer artery having the higher PW...

Mechanisms of ischemic stroke in patients with intracranial atherosclerosis: A high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging study.

High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI) has a unique ability to provide an evaluation of the intracranial artery wall. This study aimed to investigate the possible mechanisms of ischemic st...

A Study of Niaspan on Endothelium-Dependent and Endothelium-Independent Vascular Reactivity

A study to evaluate the inter- and intra subject variabilities of flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of brachial artery and nitroglycerin (GTN) induced dilation of brachial artery.

The Efficacy and Safety of MK0724 IV for Improvement of Neurological Damage and Recovery From Middle Cerebral Artery Ischemic Stroke

The safety and efficacy of MK0724 will be assessed in patients with acute middle cerebral artery stroke using the Action Reach Arm Test (ARAT). This test allows measurement of a specific f...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.

The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.

Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.
