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...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate ischemic events and neuropsychological changes after carotid artery angioplasty and stenting with a neuroprotection device.
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 this study is to determine if carotid artery stenosis can be detected using an electronic stethoscope. This study will use a commercially available electronic stethoscope t...
The correlation between metabolic syndrome and carotid artery stenosis is well established. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between morbid obesity and carotid art...
We hypothesized the inflammatory markers (IM) could be independent predictors of carotid stenosis progression (CSP) after carotid artery stenting (CAS).
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...
Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute systemic vasculitis that primarily affects the coronary artery, but does not commonly affect the carotid artery. Cerebral infarction (CI) with internal carotid artery...
Our purpose was to evaluate the clinical indications for carotid duplex ultrasonography and determine for each indication how often carotid artery disease was identified.We retrospectively reviewed th...
Carotid artery endarterectomy (CEA) remains the most common surgical intervention for the treatment of symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis. Several studies have shown a lower risk of ...
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.
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.
The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.
