Asymmetry in prevalence of femoral but not carotid atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerotic disease is caused by a combination of systemic and local factors (e.g. geometry) affecting local flow conditions. In contrast to the c...

Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity is not increased in obesity.
There are conflicting results in the literature concerning the relationship between obesity and arterial stiffness, assessed by carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV). The discrepancies could be due to differences in carotid-femoral distance measu

Carotid subclinical atherosclerosis is associated with disease activity but not vitamin D in Korean systemic lupus erythematosus.
Atherosclerosis develops early in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and is an important cause of mortality. Vitamin D deficiency is found to be associated with cardiovascular disease and autoimmunity. We evaluated the extent of carotid subc

Prevalence by sex of preclinical carotid atherosclerosis in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes.
There is clinical trial evidence that only early, intensive risk factor control can reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetes (T2DM). However, there is little information regarding preclinical atherosclerosis at d

Current status of carotid ultrasound in atherosclerosis.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) primarily caused by atherosclerosis is a major cause of death and disability in developed countries. Sonographic carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) is widely studied as a surrogate marker for detecting subclinical athe

Mutations of mitochondrial genome in carotid atherosclerosis.
With aim of detection the spectrum of mitochondrial DNA mutations in patients with carotid atherosclerosis from Moscow Region, we used a Roche 454 high-throughput sequencing of the whole mitochondrial genome. We have found that the presence of a numb

Measurement of cortical thickness asymmetry in carotid occlusive disease.
Despite being considered an important anatomical parameter directly related to neuronal density, cortical thickness is not routinely assessed in studies of the human brain in vivo. This paucity has been largely due to the size and convoluted shape of

Arcuate fasciculus asymmetry has a hand in language function but not handedness.
The importance of relationships between handedness, language lateralization and localization, and white matter tracts for language performance is unclear. The goal of the study was to investigate these relationships by examining arcuate fasciculus (A

Mitochondrial Haplogroups Affect Severity But Not Prevalence of Diabetic Retinopathy.
We previously reported European mitochondrial haplogroup H to be a risk factor for and haplogroup UK to be protective against proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) among Caucasian patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR). The purpose of this study

Resistin might not be a risk factor for carotid artery atherosclerosis in elderly Chinese males.
To investigate the correlation between the serum resistin level and carotid artery atherosclerosis in elderly Chinese males.
