The importance of inflammation in atherosclerosis is well established in cardiovascular disease. However, limited data exist on the relationship between vascular inflammation and the severity of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAD). We investigated the relationship between biochemical...
Cellular adhesion molecules (CAMs), by mediating the recruitment of circulating leukocytes to the blood vessel wall and their subsequent migration into the subendothelial spaces, play a crucial role in all stages of atherosclerosis. Soluble forms of CAMs, probably derived from proteolytic...
To capture the response of an acute intervention, multiple post intervention measurements of flow-mediated dilation (FMD) must be performed. The effect of repetitive reactive hyperemia on endothelial function and the measurement of FMD are unknown. The purpose of this investigation was (1) to...
Question: In patients with clinically stable coronary artery disease, who are scheduled for elective abdominal aortic or infrainguinal vascular surgery, does prophylactic coronary artery revascularization prior to vascular surgery reduce long-term mortality? Population: Patients met inclusion...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the lower extremities is a common and potentially life-threatening manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis. Significant PAD is identified by an ankle brachial index (ABI) <0.90; its presence is strongly associated with the major modifiable cardiac risk...
We describe an unusual presentation of toe ulceration in a 39-year-old otherwise healthy man. The left fifth toe was painful for several months with ulceration at the tip. The other toes appeared cyanotic and discolored. Foot pulses were normal. Laboratory testing revealed the platelet count at...
Endostatin, an endogenous anti-angiogenic protein, has been linked to reduced atherosclerosis in animal models. We conducted a nested case-control study to ascertain whether decreased circulating endostatin might be associated with increased odds of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and whether...
