Mediterranean diet and carotid atherosclerosis in the Northern Manhattan Study.
Adherence to a Mediterranean-style diet (MeDi) may protect against clinical vascular events by reducing atherosclerosis, but data is limited. This is the first observational study of the association between MeDi adherence and carotid plaque thickness

Egg consumption and carotid atherosclerosis in the Northern Manhattan study.
The evidence supporting recommendations to limit intake of cholesterol rich foods is inconclusive. We aimed to examine the association between egg consumption and carotid atherosclerosis phenotypes, and the association with clinical vascular events i

Subfractions of High-Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol and Carotid Intima-Media Thickness: The Northern Manhattan Study.
Recent drug trials have challenged the high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) antiatherosclerotic hypothesis, suggesting that total level of HDL-C may not be the best target for intervention. HDL-C subfractions may be better markers of vascular

Intravascular Ultrasound for Intracranial and Extracranial Carotid Artery Stent Placement.
Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) can provide valuable information regarding endoluminal morphology. We present the first description of IVUS-guided intracranial and extracranial carotid artery stent placement for arterial dissection. A 41-year-old fem

Effects of extracranial carotid stenosis on intracranial blood flow.
The hemodynamic effects of extracranial carotid stenosis on intracranial blood flow are not well characterized. We sought to determine the impact of degree of stenosis, stenosis length, and residual lumen on intracranial blood flow in patients with e

Intracranial blood flow changes after extracranial carotid artery stenting.
Carotid artery stenting is an endovascular treatment option for patients with extracranial carotid stenosis. However, intracranial blood flow changes following stenting have not been established.

Sleep disturbances and cognitive decline in the Northern Manhattan Study.
To examine frequent snoring, sleepiness, and sleep duration with baseline and longitudinal performance on neuropsychological (NP) battery.

Internal carotid artery stenting for intracranial atherosclerosis.
Intracranial atherosclerotic disease is a significant cause of stroke in the United States. Much like coronary atherosclerosis, this disease leads to arterial stenosis secondary to the buildup of lipid-based plaques in intracranial vessels. Ischemic
