From our experience among Egyptian population in our institution, there is an increased prevalence of hidden subclinical peripheral artery disease along with carotid artery affection. Thus, increasing the risk of post-operative morbid complications.We aim to evaluate routine/ non-selective carotid and peripheral arterial screening in asymptomatic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting in the Egyptian populationIt is a prospective, non-randomized, comparative study including two groups of patients. The study will start from the day of approval of the ethical committee. It will include 260 patients, on basis of "all new comers". Patients will be examined and classified as "high-risk" group (ɳ = 130) or "low-risk" group (ɳ=130).
All patients will have the "routine" preoperative investigations along with evaluation of extracranial carotid system by non-invasive carotid duplex and lower limb arterial system by non-invasive bilateral lower limb arterial duplex.

Radiation-associated carotid vasculopathy is a common late sequelae in patients with head and neck cancer, which correlates with the incidence of stroke. Currently, little is known about 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...
The aim of the study is to assess the correlation of blood flow measurement in cervical and intracranial arteries between quantitative magnetic resonance angiography (qMRA) and duplex sono...
External carotid artery (ECA) stenosis is an independent mortality predictor. Additionally, concomitant ECA and internal carotid artery (ICA) stenoses progression has been associated with an increased...
Carotid artery kinking is a frequent finding in duplex ultrasonography. However, isolated morphological changes without significant carotid stenosis is rarely symptomatic. Neck pain is a rare symptom ...
Carotid Duplex Velocity Criteria Recommended by the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound and Endorsed by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission Lacks Predictive Ability for Identifying High Grade Carotid Artery Stenosis.
Carotid duplex is the first line imaging modality for characterizing degree of carotid stenosis. The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), in published guideline documents, has endorsed use of...
Cone Beam CT (CBCT) scans in current day dental practice are highly collimated yet involve areas along the course of the extracranial carotid artery. Detecting an extracranial carotid calcification on...
Carotid artery longitudinal wall motion (CALM) is associated with established indicators of arterial stiffness in healthy adults and in adults with cardiovascular disease risk factors. CALM assessment...
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.
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.
Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
