Carotid intima-media thickness predicts carotid plaque development: Meta-analysis of seven studies involving 9,341 participants.

Carotid intima-media thickness and carotid plaque are well-established imaging markers used to capture different stages of the atherosclerotic disease process. We aimed to quantify to which extent car...

Plaque vulnerability in patients with high- and moderate-grade carotid stenosis - comparison of plaque features on MRI with histopathological findings.

  BACKGROUND: Plaque vulnerability plays an important role in determining the risk of subsequent cerebrovascular events in patients with carotid stenosis. Plaque morphology magnetic resonance ima...

Associations of endogenous sex hormones with carotid plaque burden and characteristics in midlife women.

Endogenous sex hormones may be involved in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women. Carotid plaque characteristics, such as echogenicity, an ultrasound measure that reflects plaque c...

Sonographic assessment of carotid atherosclerosis: preferred risk indicator for future cardiovascular events?

Carotid ultrasound allows rapid and reliable quantification of atherosclerosis in humans. Although the definition of carotid plaque is not uniform, intimal thickening of at least 1.5 mm is currently d...

Area-preserving mapping of 3D carotid ultrasound images using density-equalizing reference map.

Atherosclerotic plaques are focal and tend to occur at arterial bends and bifurcations. To quantitatively monitor the local changes in the carotid vessel-wall-plus-plaque thickness (VWT) and compare t...

Carotid Plaque Regression With Statin Treatment Assessed by High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The purpose of the study is to determine if short term (6 months) treatment with statins to lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in vascular disease patients with carotid plaque will be ass...

Structural Stability of Carotid Plaque and Symptomatology

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 ...

New Technologies to Determine Carotid Plaque Vulnerability in Patients With Significant Carotid Plaques

The researchers are trying to determine if the characterization of "vulnerable" carotid artery plaques can be accomplished with ultrasound-based methods that look for vessels in the plaque...

Prognostic Value of Carotid CEUS in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound(CEUS) of carotid artery plaque is a novel method that enabled direct visualization of neovessels in the vulnerable plaque. Plaque enhancement with CEUS showed ...

Lectine Pathway in Unstable Carotid Plaque

The study is aimed to investigate the possible role of lectin pathway - an alternative pathway of complement activation - in affecting stability of carotid atherosclerotic plaques and the ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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.
