  • carotid stenosis
  • Although perioperative stroke is multifactorial and the value of revascularization of asymptomatic carotid disease prior to open heart surgery remains controversial, treatment of patients with severe bilateral carotid stenosis appears reasonable for perioperative stroke prevention (2). (escardio.org)
  • I read with great interest the article by Goessens and colleagues about the prognosis of asymptomatic carotid stenosis in patients with manifest arterial disease. (ahajournals.org)
  • 1 I concur with their statement that asymptomatic carotid stenosis is a predictor of vascular events including vascular death, and I also agree with a global management approach including identification and control of appropriate vascular risk factors including lifestyle changes and appropriate antithrombotic medication. (ahajournals.org)
  • Our group previously reported in a similar but larger cohort (n=357 with ≥50% stenosis) of neurologically asymptomatic individuals followed prospectively, a strong graded relationship between the degree of carotid stenosis documented at baseline assessment and the risk of all vascular events including TIA and ischemic stroke. (ahajournals.org)
  • I would thus suggest that some individuals with clinical manifestation of other vascular conditions and concomitant asymptomatic carotid stenosis may be at higher risk for cerebrovascular events, in particular those with a high degree (≥80%) of carotid stenosis and those who progress to such a level of occlusive disease.

  • Methods
  • Methods A retrospective study was conducted including 689 patients with newly diagnosed asymptomatic CHD from 2004 to 2010 in Jinan, China (308 males and 381 females, age ranged 45-88 years). (bmj.com)
  • Progression
  • This study will test whether an investigational drug, solanezumab, can slow the progression of memory problems associated with amyloid, a protein that forms plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer disease. (nih.gov)
  • The purpose of this study is to test whether an investigational drug called solanezumab can slow the progression of memory problems associated with brain amyloid (the protein that forms plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease) as compared with placebo in subjects with preclinical AD. (ucsf.edu)
  • Long-term drug prevention aiming to minimize disease progression and CV events in these subjects is probably beneficial, but expensive. (diva-portal.org)
  • Diabetics
  • TSH levels were positively and linearly associated with the TC and TG levels in euthyroid non-diabetics with newly diagnosed asymptomatic CHD. (bmj.com)
  • diagnosis
  • There are also those who have the disease but show few or no symptoms, which makes diagnosis difficult. (celiac.org)
  • The primary hypothesis of the study is that posaconazole 400 mg twice daily improves therapeutic response compared to placebo in participants with a diagnosis of asymptomatic chronic Chagas disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • relatives
  • We administered executive, semantic, verb-production, and syntactic tasks to sporadic PD patients, genetic PD patients with PARK2 (parkin) or LRRK2 (dardarin) mutation, asymptomatic first-degree relatives of the latter with similar mutations, and socio-demographically matched controls. (cambridge.org)
  • main
  • The present study describes two main findings: Using DCE-MRI ( a ) a gradually increase of microcirculation from early stages of disease to symptomatic myeloma can be detected and ( b ) a subgroup of patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance and asymptomatic multiple myeloma presenting with increased microcirculation parameters can be distinguished from healthy controls. (aacrjournals.org)
  • study
  • the Asymptomatic Cervical Bruit Study Group. (ahajournals.org)
  • Aim of this study is to establish whether serology-based pathway of the ESPGHAN guidelines could also be reliably applied to asymptomatic children from high-risk groups. (physiciansweekly.com)
  • The aim of our study was to investigate whether dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) allows visualization of changes in microcirculation between healthy controls on the one side and early/advanced stages of plasma cell disease on the other. (aacrjournals.org)
  • symptoms
  • Although no difference was observed with regard to BMD and BMI, improvement was also noted in objective disease symptoms and quality of life scores. (celiac.org)
  • 7 diseases should be aware of because often does not cause symptoms and do not realize. (blogspot.com)
  • In my experience, only realized when disease symptoms are entered stage III or IV, and some even have direct dialysis (hemodialysis). (blogspot.com)
