Association of sex hormones with carotid artery distensibility in men and postmenopausal women: multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.
The decline in carotid distensibility with age is steeper in women than in men, however, the correlates of this sex difference are not known. We examined the association of bioavailable testosterone, estradiol, dehydroepiandrosterone, and sex hormone

Carotid artery distensibility and hormone therapy and menopause: the Los Angeles Atherosclerosis Study.
Observational studies have suggested that arterial distensibility decreases during menopause; however, its relationship with hormone therapy use remains controversial. We prospectively studied distensibility and hormone therapy use at different menop

The Association between the PR Interval and Left Ventricular Measurements in the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
Introduction. Few studies have examined the association between the PR interval (PRi) and subclinical cardiovascular disease measures. Methods and Results. The Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) is a population-based study of 6814 men and wo

Association between anxiety levels and weight change in the multiethnic study of atherosclerosis.
To examine the association between anxiety and weight change in a multiethnic cohort followed for approximately 10 years.

Association of Serum Sex Hormones with Hemostatic Factors in Women On and Off Hormone Therapy: The Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
Hormone therapy (HT) is associated with increased risk of both venous and arterial thrombosis, which are multifactorial in origin.

Association of interleukin-6 with the progression of carotid atherosclerosis: a 9-year follow-up study.
Limited information is available on the long-term effects of interleukin-6 (IL-6) on systemic atherosclerosis. The purpose of the present study was to clarify the relationship between chronic elevation of IL-6 and the long-term progression of carotid

Associations of cardiovascular disease risk factors and calcified atherosclerosis with aortoiliac bifurcation position: the MultiEthnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
We investigated associations of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and calcified atherosclerosis with aortoiliac bifurcation position. The bifurcation position was determined by measuring the distance from the aortoiliac bifurcation to the L5-

Resistive and pulsatile arterial hemodynamics and cardiovascular events: the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
Arterial blood pressure is dependent on interactions between the heart and arteries. Resistive and pulsatile components of arterial load can be assessed by systemic vascular resistance (SVR, a microvascular property) and the ratio of stroke volume to

The association of inflammatory markers with cerebral vasoreactivity and carotid atherosclerosis in transient ischaemic attack.
Inflammatory mediators have an important role in the pathogenesis of stroke. Increased activity of inflammatory mediators initiates the development of atherosclerosis independently of other risk factors, thus compromising brain microcirculation and c
