Atherosclerotic in carotids can determinate a poor prognosis in individuals after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Thus, we aimed to evaluate mortality associated to carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) in the participants from the Strategy of Registry of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ERICO) study.

To examine whether carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), the prevalence of increased CIMT, and the presence of carotid plaque differ according to menopausal status.
Both hypertensive and atherosclerotic processes contribute to common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT). Elevated CCA-IMT may be indicative of subclinical cerebrovascular disease; however...
Exaggerated cardiovascular reactivity to acute psychological stress has been associated with increased carotid intima-media thickness (IMT). However, inter-study variability in this relationship sugge...
The carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) is an important biomarker for cardiovascular diseases and stroke monitoring. This study presents an intelligence-based, novel, robust, and clinically-strong s...
To assess cardiovascular risk factors and carotid intima-media thickness in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the main cause of death in patients on dialysis. The aim of this study is the long-term prognostic values of carotid intima-media thickness and coronary flow...
Carotid ultrasound can reveal the intima-media complex thickness(IMT), that has been reported to be a marker of atherosclerosis as well as a risk of cardiovascular events, and to be attenu...
This study is aimed to analyze the effects of aggressive and conventional lipid lowering therapy with Pravastatin on carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in patients with hyperlipidemia an...
The purpose of this study is to obtain the distribution of measurements of the intima media thickness of carotid arteries in people with high cardiovascular risk.
Epistaxis is a very frequent emergency among adults and often needs specialised treatment in an ENT-department. Among others, atherosclerosis is often named as a reason for an increased ri...
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.
The excision of the thickened, atheromatous tunica intima of a carotid artery.
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Temporary storage of information for a few seconds to hours, as opposed to long-term memory which refers to material stored for days, years, or a lifetime.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
