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.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Primary Purpose: Screening

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...
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...
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...
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...
To examine whether carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), the prevalence of increased CIMT, and the presence of carotid plaque differ according to menopausal status.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the carotid intima-media thickness together with the thickness of the epicardial adipose tissue in patients receiving antiepileptic drug therapy and to investigat...
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...
Preclinical experiments on animal models are essential to understand the mechanisms of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Metabolomics allows access to the metabolic perturbations associated with CVD in he...
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.
A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)
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.
