Association of fat density with subclinical atherosclerosis.
Ectopic fat density is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors above and beyond fat volume. Volumetric measures of ectopic fat have been associated with CVD risk factors and subclinical atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to

Changes over the last decade in carotid atherosclerosis in patients with end-stage kidney disease.
Therapies for chronic kidney disease have changed greatly over the last decade. The aim of this study was to examine the changes in the clinical characteristics and carotid atherosclerosis of patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) over the las

The Extent of Subclinical Atherosclerosis Is Partially Predicted by the Inflammatory Load: A Prospective Study over 5 Years in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Matched Controls.
This prospective followup study investigated subclinical atherosclerosis in relation to traditional cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) recruited at diagnosis compared with controls.

Subclinical carotid atherosclerosis and neurocognitive function in an urban population.
Examine age, sex, race, and socioeconomic status as modifiers of the association between carotid intimal medial thickness (IMT) and neurocognitive performance in a socioeconomically diverse, biracial, urban, adult population.

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction and risk of carotid atherosclerosis.
The effect of subclinical thyroid dysfunction on vascular atherosclerosis remains uncertain. The objective of this study was to elucidate the association between sustained subclinical thyroid dysfunction and carotid plaques, which are an early surrog

Plasma IL-5 concentration and subclinical carotid atherosclerosis.
Genetic variants robustly associated with coronary artery disease were reported in the vicinity of the interleukin (IL)-5 locus, and animal studies suggested a protective role for IL-5 in atherosclerosis. Therefore, we set this work to explore IL-5 a

Subclinical Carotid Atherosclerosis in Asymptomatic Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
Subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus are considered to be at high risk for cardiovascular disease. The identification of carotid atherosclerosis is a validated surrogate marker of cardiovascular disease. Nurses are key professionals in the improvem
