The association between periodontal disease and carotid atherosclerosis has been widely discussed, but to our knowledge, no population-based studies have been conducted on the association between masticatory ability and carotid atherosclerosis. We aimed to clarify the hypothesis that objectively accessed masticatory performance is related to increased intima-media thickness (IMT) in a general urban population.

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...
Khat has severe adverse socio-economic consequences. It causes serious cardiovascular, neurological and psychiatric problems. The study aimed to evaluate the effect of chewing khat on intima-media thi...
Obesity surgery has shown to decrease the carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), but studies that compare different surgical techniques are scarce, especially in men.
We evaluated the roles of biomarkers of immune activation with carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) progression in treated HIV infection.
Carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) is a validated surrogate marker of atherosclerosis. Dickkopf-1 (Dkk-1) and sclerostin modulate wingless signaling, which is involved in atherosclerosis. The purpo...
This is an observational study to measure the thickness of artery walls in the neck (intima media thickness IMT) by ultrasound examination in middle-aged subjects with central obesity. Th...
This minimal risk protocol is designed to assess the reproducibility of B-mode ultrasound measurements of carotid intima media thickness (IMT) when the scans are performed in CC Radiology ...
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.
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.
A syndrome related to increased atmospheric pressure and characterized by tremors, nausea, dizziness, decreased motor and mental performance, and SEIZURES. This condition may occur in those who dive deeply (c. 1000 ft) usually while breathing a mixture of oxygen and helium. The condition is associated with a neuroexcitatory effect of helium.
Pathological process resulting in the fibrous obstruction of the small- and medium-sized PULMONARY VEINS and PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. Veno-occlusion can arise from fibrous proliferation of the VASCULAR INTIMA and VASCULAR MEDIA; THROMBOSIS; or a combination of both.
