We hypothesized the inflammatory markers (IM) could be independent predictors of carotid stenosis progression (CSP) after carotid artery stenting (CAS).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Current neurovascular research
Significant national variation exists in defining the degree of stenosis that requires intervention in patients with asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis (ACAS). We aimed to evaluate the risk of perio...
To characterize patients with internal carotid occlusion (ICO) with respect to demographic data, associated diseases, medical management and risk factors and to compare these patients with those with ...
It is unclear whether incidental carotid artery calcification (CAC) on radiographs has a defined relationship to clinically significant carotid artery stenosis, and therefore risk of stroke. The prima...
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS) are the 2 current standard treatments for carotid artery stenosis. There is still no well-defined consensus with regard to their superior...
Stroke is a major cause of morbidity or mortality after lung surgery. CAS is useful for detecting carotid artery stenosis, which is one of the causes of stroke. To investigate the frequency of, and ri...
The purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy of a new non-invasive device, the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS), to check for stenosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) as compared...
Patients with a moderate to severe carotid atherosclerotic plaque are at risk for stroke and this risk increases with increasing degree of stenosis. It has been shown that carotid endarter...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Bard ViVEXX Carotid Stent and Emboshield BareWire Rapid Exchange Embolic Protection System in the treatment of extracranial carotid artery stenos...
The purpose of the research is to understand structural plaque abnormalities that make a carotid plaque unstable and brake off (embolize) which would help to predict and treat individuals ...
The aim of the study is to confirm, whether the MER® stent can be used, without limitations, for the endovascular carotid stenosis treatment in daily clinical practice. Eligible patients ...
Blood clot formation in any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES. This may produce CAROTID STENOSIS or occlusion of the vessel, leading to TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBRAL INFARCTION; or AMAUROSIS FUGAX.
Narrowing or stricture of any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES, most often due to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp822-3)
Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)
Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.
