Atherosclerosis is a serious disease that increases the risk of myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke. Previous studies have demonstrated that microRNA (miR)-29c could play significant roles in atherosclerosis via regulating inflammatory processes. However, the relationship between miR-29c and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) remains unknown. This study investigated associations between miR-29c and atherosclerosis and tested whether plasma miR-29c levels could be used to detect atherosclerosis.

To examine whether carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), the prevalence of increased CIMT, and the presence of carotid plaque differ according to menopausal status.
We aimed to determine whether there is an increase in aortic intima-media thickness values measured from the abdominal aorta in addition to the traditional carotid intima-media thickness in patients w...
Increased carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (CF-PWV) and increased carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in hypertension (HT) patients are indicators of asymptomatic organ damage. The relationship be...
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...
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...
Molecular analysis of the atheroma plaque. Screening for a novel biomarker of carotid status.
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.
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
A microRNA (abbreviated miRNA) is a small non-coding RNA molecule (containing about 22 nucleotides) found in plants, animals, and some viruses. Key findings: miRNA is involved in the normal functioning of eukaryotic cells, so has dysregulation...
