  • intima-media thi
  • In the carotid artery, intima-media thickness (IMT) was recorded together with an assessment of echogenicity by the Grey scale median (GSM) method in both overt plaques and in the intima-media complex (IM-GSM). (diva-portal.org)
  • Comparative predictive and diagnostic value of flow-mediated vasodilation in the brachial artery and intima media thickness of the carotid artery for assessment of coronary artery disease severity. (biomedsearch.com)
  • BACKGROUND: While recent reports suggest that both flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) in the brachial artery (BA), endothelium-dependent vasodilatation, and intima media thickness (IMT) in the carotid artery correlate with the extent of coronary artery disease (CAD), it is not clear which modality is a better predictor for CAD severity and whether either of these modalities are superior to conventional ST-segment depression in exercise stress electrocardiogram (ECG).

  • Aims: To investigate the association between intima-media thickness of brachial and common carotid arteries and factors of the coagulation- and fibrinolysis system with diastolic dysfunction in patients with a previous myocardial infarction. (uio.no)
  • deep brachi
  • It gives rise to the deep brachial artery, which curves around the back of the humerus to supply blood to the triceps muscles. (innerbody.com)
  • We report a case of a 49-year-old male who developed a deep brachial artery pseudoaneurysm following an arthroscopic shoulder debridement and lysis of adhesions. (ovid.com)
  • A review of the literature demonstrates that pseudoaneurysm formation after arthroscopic procedures is rare and pseudoaneurysms of the deep brachial artery have yet to be reported. (ovid.com)
  • systolic
  • OBJECTIVE: Cardiovascular (CV) risk relates to the blood flow velocity pattern in the brachial artery during hyperemia, especially to the hyperaemic systolic to diastolic mean blood flow velocity (SDFV) ratio. (diva-portal.org)
  • CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that the hyperemic systolic to diastolic blood flow velocity ratio in the brachial artery is related to atherosclerosis in the carotid artery. (diva-portal.org)
  • Thereafter, artery will be occluded by cuff inflation to 50 mm Hg above systolic pressure for 5 minutes and subsequently deflated. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Conclusions: Diastolic dysfunction is correlated to cIMa of common carotid and brachial arteries, systolic blood pressure and Prothrombin fragment 1+2 in patients with myocardial infarction. (uio.no)
  • velocity
  • Blood flow was calculated using the cross-sectional area of the brachial artery and time-averaged mean blood velocity. (biomedsearch.com)
  • This thesis aims to evaluate the blood flow velocity in the Brachial artery during reactive hyperemia. (diva-portal.org)
  • Under normal conditions, the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) blood flow pattern and velocity show large variations due to the metabolic activity of the bowel [ 18 - 20 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Pulse
  • The pulsating movement of blood, or pulse pulse, alternate expansion and contraction of artery walls as heart action varies blood volume within the arteries. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Additional symptoms for brachial artery obstruction include sensitivity to cold, discoloration as fingers turn pale or blue, lack of pulse in the wrist, bluish or slow-growing finger nails, arm hair reduction, and a loss of muscle strength. (azcentral.com)
  • blood
  • As medical knowledge advanced, however, students of anatomy realized that arteries carry blood and only the windpipe and bronchial tubes carry air. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Arteries have muscular walls that expand and contract to help pump blood with high levels of oxygen to the tissues of the body. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Hypoxia Augments Oscillatory Blood Flow in Brachial Artery during Leg Cycling. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Blood flow volume in the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and brachial artery (BA), the heart rate and the blood pressure were measured at rest, 15 min after starting thermal stimulation and 10, 20, 30 and 40 min after completing thermal stimulation. (hindawi.com)
  • The effect of an apple polyphenol extract rich in epicatechin and flavan-3-ol oligomers on brachial artery flow-mediated vasodilatory function in volunteers with elevated blood pressure. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The artery can be modelled as a particular deformable pipe, when the blood is actually a fluid with specific properties. (witpress.com)
  • Caucasians, males, diabetics, and those with high cholesterol or high blood pressure are at greater risk of developing a brachial artery obstruction. (azcentral.com)
