Narrowing or stricture of any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES, most often due to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX).

Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.

Echo-Doppler measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery in asymptomatic patients with hepatitis B virus and healthy adults. (1/430)BACKGROUND AND AIM: The aim of this prospective study was to determine the range of various hemodynamic parameters of portal vein and hepatic artery with echo-Doppler imaging in asymptomatic carriers of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and healthy adults. METHODS: One hundred and twenty two healthy adults and fifty-three asymptomatic patients with chronic HBV formed two groups. All participants underwent color Doppler imaging of the portal vein and hepatic artery. A single operator performed all echo-Doppler measurements. The examination protocol included measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery diameter (d), blood flow (BF), time averaged velocity (TAV) and calculation of Doppler Perfusion Index (DPI) of liver. RESULTS: Asymptomatic HBV carriers showed a statistically significant decrease in portal vein TAV (12.8 +/- 6.1 vs 17.5 +/- 8.8), an increase in portal vein BF (411.38 +/- 211.31 vs 327.55 +/- 188.77) and decrease in DPI (0.18 +/- 0.14 vs 0.28 +/- 0.15). CONCLUSIONS: Echo-Doppler measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery can detect significant hemodynamic changes in asymptomatic HBV carriers. (+info)

Common HBV genotype in southeastern Iranian patients. (3/430)Asymptomatic hepatitis B infection is characterized as a type of hepatitis in which hepatitis B surface antigen is present in the patient's peripheral blood despite the absence of clinical symptoms. Previous studies have shown that a particular genotype may effect clinical manifestations of hepatitis B infection; hence, the aim of the current study was to determine the frequency of hepatitis B virus genotypes among asymptomatic carriers of hepatitis B.In this experimental study, the plasma samples of 100 asymptomatic carriers were collected and tested for HBsAg and anti-HBs using ELISA. The genotype of hepatitis B virus was determined by the GAP-PCR technique. The results of this study showed that all samples were positive for hepatitis B surface antigen and anti-hepatitis B core antigen was present in 60 (60%) cases. Our results also indicated that all patients had the D genotype of hepatitis B virus. (+info)

Cardiac risk stratification: role of the coronary calcium score. (8/430)Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is an integral part of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is the leading cause of death in industrialized nations and there is a constant effort to develop preventative strategies. The emphasis is on risk stratification and primary risk prevention in asymptomatic patients to decrease cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. The Framingham Risk Score predicts CHD events only moderately well where family history is not included as a risk factor. There has been an exploration for new tests for better risk stratification and risk factor modification. While the Framingham Risk Score, European Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation Project, and European Prospective Cardiovascular Munster study remain excellent tools for risk factor modification, the CAC score may have additional benefit in risk assessment. There have been several studies supporting the role of CAC score for prediction of myocardial infarction and cardiovascular mortality. It has been shown to have great scope in risk stratification of asymptomatic patients in the emergency room. Additionally, it may help in assessment of progression or regression of coronary artery disease. Furthermore, the CAC score may help differentiate ischemic from nonischemic cardiomyopathy. (+info)
The myocardial perfusion scintigraphy in asymptomatic diabetic patients
Introduction: Asymptomatic diabetic patients are at increased risk of cardiovascular complications. Myocardial perfusion scan may be effective in risk evaluation in this population. Methods: 106 asymptomatic diabetic patients (age: min: 37, max: 82, mean: 57.73±8.88), including 56 females (52.8%) and 50 males (47.2%) were enrolled in the study. Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy was performed by Gated Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (Gated-SPECT) method. Perfusion and function status was evaluated by qualitative and semi-quantitative parameters. Results: By visual analysis totally 40 out of 106 patients (37.7%) showed abnormal scan. From which, 26(24.5%) showed involvement in one, 13(12.3%) in two, and 1(0.9%) in all three vessel territories. By semi-quantitative method, from 103 patients, 28 (27.2%) were abnormal and 75 (72.8%) were normal. From all the asymptomatic diabetic patients, 11 patients (10.4%) had dilated left ventricles. Transient Ischemic Dilation (TID) was noted in 10

Objective: Although coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in type 2 diabetic patients, it is frequently asymptomatic. Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is reported to show ischemia in a significant number of asymptomatic diabetic patients. We studied the prevalence and severity of myocardial perfusion defects in asymptomatic diabetic patients and its clinical impact. Methods and patients: One hundred thirty consecutive asymptomatic patients, aged 35-65 years with type 2 diabetes mellitus and with no history of CAD and no cardiac symptoms were recruited in the study. Echocardiography, electrocardiography (ECG), routine laboratory tests and exercise treadmill test (ETT) were performed and patients with weakly positive or negative ETT underwent Dipyridamole MPI. Patients with positive ETT were referred to coronary angiography. Patients were followed for at least 17 months (mean 21.7 months) and any cardiac event was recorded. Results: We studied 81 female and 49 male patients with
Association of Multiple Risk Factors and Insulin Resistance With Increased Prevalence of Asymptomatic Coronary Artery Disease...
One third of the subjects with CAC scores above the 80th percentile for age and sex and one fifth of the subjects with scores below the 80th percentile were randomly selected to participate in the risk factor analysis substudy. The choice of this particular cutoff point is based on the study of Raggi et al,43 in which subjects in the top 20th percentile of calcium scores had a risk ratio of 20 for future cardiovascular events, and the report by Rumberger et al39 on the sensitivity and specificity of various calcium score thresholds for obstructive disease in men and women of various ages.39 We believed that enrolling a higher percentage from the high-score group should result in a more useful range of observations by reducing the number of subjects with a zero score. The determination of age- and sex-adjusted percentile CAC scores was based on previous analysis of 5000 asymptomatic individuals who had previously undergone coronary screening at our institution, which is similar to the ...
Beta-Blockers in Asymptomatic Coronary Artery Disease | JACC: Journal of the American College of Cardiology
The benefit of beta-blockers in the management of patients with heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction has been incontrovertibly established in multiple contemporary randomized clinical trials (1-5). The recommendation for use of beta-blockers after acute myocardial infarction (MI) is mainly based on studies (6-8) that predate routine implementation of a contemporary strategy of early reperfusion and modern medical therapy, although some observational data suggest that beta-blocker therapy may be associated with reduced long-term mortality after early percutaneous coronary intervention for acute MI (9,10).. In stable coronary artery disease (CAD), there is solid evidence to show that beta-blockers effectively relieve anginal symptoms and improve myocardial ischemia (11), and are therefore recommended as first-line agents for symptom relief in both U.S. (12) and European (13) guidelines. However, the evidence base for the use of beta-blockers to improve prognosis in asymptomatic patients, ...
Asymptomatic coronary artery disease in patients with stroke. Prevalence, prognosis, diagnosis, and treatment. | Stroke
The frequency of angiographically defined asymptomatic CAD in patients with carotid disease is 40%. Although the prognosis of patients with asymptomatic 1-vessel or 2-vessel CAD is good (annual cardiac mortality rate less than 2%), the prognosis of asymptomatic 3-vessel disease or left main CAD is substantially less favorable (annual cardiac mortality 5-8%). Preliminary data from nonrandomized studies suggest that coronary artery bypass surgery significantly lowers cardiac mortality in patients with asymptomatic 3-vessel or left main CAD. Further studies are needed to determine 1) vascular risk factor profiles that are predictive of asymptomatic CAD in patients with cerebrovascular disease and 2) the prevalence of asymptomatic CAD, especially 3-vessel and left main CAD, in patients with a variety of subtypes of cerebrovascular disease (e.g., carotid disease, atherosclerotic vertebrobasilar disease, cardioembolism, penetrating artery disease, stroke of undetermined cause). If the prevalence of ...

Predictive value of coronary computed tomography angiography in asymptomatic individuals with diabetes mellitus: Systematic...
Background: Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is generally not established as a screening tool for asymptomatic individuals. However, it is controversial whether this test may have a role for screening asymptomatic individuals with diabetes mellitus (DM) due to the high prevalence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) in this subgroup. Methods: We searched PubMed and EMBASE through May 2017 for studies that reported on the association between findings at coronary CTA and future cardiac events in asymptomatic individuals with DM. Summary hazard ratios for the presence of obstructive CAD (,= 50% stenosis), presence of non-obstructive plaque (, 50% stenosis), segment involvement score, and segment stenosis score were derived using a random effects regression model. I-2 was calculated to quantify between-study heterogeneity and causing factors were identified using meta-regression. Results: A total of 10 studies reporting on 5012 individuals with DM (median age: 62.3 years, median proportion of ...

Tips From Other Journals - American Family Physician
The beneficial effect of hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) on the progression of atherosclerosis has been noted in individual studies. This may be a class effect, assuming equivalent improvement in lipid abnormalities. Hecht and Harman compared the effects of atorvastatin and simvastatin on the progression of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) using serial electron beam tomography (EBT) to determine calcified plaque burden.. Through an observational technique that employed serial EBT evaluation, lipid-lowering agents, and dosing (as determined by treating physicians), 149 asymptomatic patients with no history of CAD who had positive evidence of atherosclerotic disease on EBT evaluation were included in the study. Aspirin use and tobacco cessation were recommended to all patients, along with tight control of diabetes and hypertension. Patients were aggressively treated, resulting in optimal improvement in all lipid parameters. About 50 percent of patients ...

Physical Activity/Exercise and Type 2 Diabetes | Diabetes Care
For a more detailed review on this subject, see ref. 48. Before beginning a program of physical activity more vigorous than brisk walking, people with diabetes should be assessed for conditions that might be associated with increased likelihood of CVD or that might contraindicate certain types of exercise or predispose to injury, such as severe autonomic neuropathy, severe peripheral neuropathy, and preproliferative or proliferative retinopathy. The patients age and previous physical activity level should be considered.. The role of stress testing before beginning an exercise program is controversial. There is no evidence that such testing is routinely necessary for those planning moderate-intensity activity such as walking, but it should be considered for previously sedentary individuals at moderate to high risk of CVD who want to undertake vigorous aerobic exercise exceeding the demands of everyday living (49). The prevalence of both symptomatic and asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) ...
Coronary artery disease (CAD) extension-derived risk stratification for asymptomatic diabetic patients: usefulness of low-dose...
Background: As one of the most frequent risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is one of the largest causes of death. However, an acute cardiac presentation is not uncommon in diabetic patients, and the current investigative approach remains often inadequate. The aim of our study was to retrospectively stratify the risk of asymptomatic T2DM patients using low-dose 640-slice coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). Materials and methods: CCTA examinations of 62 patients (mean age, 65 years) with previous diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and without cardiac symptoms were analyzed. Image acquisition was performed using a 640-slice CT. Per-patient, per-vessel and per-plaque analyses were performed. Stratification risk was evaluated according to the ESC guidelines. The patients were followed up after 2.21 ± 0.56 years from CCTA examination. Results: Coronary artery disease (CAD) was found in 58 patients (93.55%) presenting 290 plaques. Analysis of all samples ...

Detection of silent myocardial ischemia in asymptomatic patients with diabetes: results of a randomized trial and meta-analysis...
Most guidelines recommend a systematic screening of asymptomatic high risk patients with diabetes for silent ischemia, but the clinical benefit of this strategy has not been demonstrated compared with the simple control of cardiovascular risk factors. We sought to determine whether referring asymptomatic diabetic patients for screening of silent ischemia decreases the risk of cardiovascular events compared with usual care. DYNAMIT was a prospective, randomized, open, blinded end-point multicenter trial run between 2000 and 2005, with a 3.5 year mean follow-up in ambulatory care in 45 French hospitals. The study included 631 male and female with diabetes aged 63.9 ± 5.1 years, with no evidence of coronary artery disease and at least 2 additional cardiovascular risk factors, receiving appropriate medical treatment. The patients were randomized centrally to either screening for silent ischemia using a bicycle exercise test or Dipyridamole Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (N = 316), or follow-up

Biomarkers and atrial fibrillation: A new paradigm for assessing the progression of left atrial endocardial remodelling
Atrial fibrillation is a heterogeneous disorder that is usually characterized by paroxysmal onset, particularly in patients without structural heart disease. Defining biological markers of atrial remodelling would help identify patients at high risk who would benefit most from prophylactic treatment and careful monitoring. Biomarkers of atrial fibrillation progression would be helpful for following patients that present with asymptomatic atrial fibrillation. Notably, the roles of such markers in the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation must be determined. Some markers may indicate the presence, complications or progression of the disease, while others may be involved in key pathological processes and thus represent novel therapeutic targets. Although a number of markers have been reported as potential predictors of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation progression towards persistent arrhythmia, their usefulness and clinical value need further validation. This report reviews several newly identified markers

The Drosophila gene pointed encodes two ETS-like proteins which are involved in the development of the midline glial cells |...
Glial-neuronal cell interactions at the ventral midline are necessary for the proper elaboration of commissures in the embryonic CNS of Drosophila. In particular, migrating midline glial cells are required for the separation of segmental commissures. During this process the glial cells recognize specific neuronal cells at the midline, they migrate posteriorly along their cell processes and thereby separate the segmental commissures. The gene pointed (pnt) is required for this glial-neuronal cell interaction, as loss of function mutations lead to a change in the migration behavior of the midline glial cells. As a consequence, anterior and posterior commissures do not become separated and appear fused. Molecular analysis of pointed has revealed two differently spliced types of transcripts, which are encoded in a region extending over 55 kb of genomic sequence. In the CNS both transcript classes are expressed in cells of the midline, including the midline glial cells. Sequence analysis of cDNA ...

Management of Postoperative Pain in the Elderly Client | healthPlexus.net
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, NC, USA.. Although the elderly compose a significant percentage of the surgical patient population, postoperative pain management for this population has received little attention.1 According to 1990 data, more than 4,000 documents are published annually about pain, but fewer than 1% focus on pain in the older adult.2 Lack of published information and research about geriatric pain results in most patients pain being managed by trial and error.. Considerable evidence suggests that pain is undertreated in older patients. This may be due in part to the misconception that pain sensation diminishes with increasing age or that the elderly patient cannot tolerate narcotic analgesia.3 The perception that older adults have less pain sensitivity than do younger patients is influenced somewhat by the silent myocardial infarctions and emergent painless intra-abdominal surgical events that frequently occur in older adults.4 The research involving pain ...

Abstract 18678: Symptoms Fail to Predict Ischemia and Cardiac Outcomes in Outpatient Diabetic Patients Referred for SPECT...
Introduction: Studies have shown a substantial prevalence of ischemic heart disease in asymptomatic diabetic patients. However, the relationship of symptoms to ischemia and events is unclear in the modern era of intensive medical management. We sought to identify the effect of symptoms on the prevalence of ischemia by SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and subsequent cardiac events in a cohort of outpatient, stable patients with diabetes referred for SPECT MPI.. Methods: The study cohort included 575 consecutive outpatients with diabetes who underwent quantitative, gated-SPECT MPI. Data was prospectively collected and compared using Chi-Square, Kaplan-Meier, and Cox proportional hazards analyses.. Results: The study population was at intermediate risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) or had known CAD (40.3%). There were no significant differences between the symptomatic patients and asymptomatic subgroup in the prevalence of ischemia (21.8% versus 22.3%, respectively, p=0.890) or ...

Several studies have shown that higher IL-18 levels are associated with poor CV outcomes in patients with stable CAD and acute coronary syndromes, and with restenosis after angioplasty.12,14-17,34 However, to date, the relationship between IL-18 levels and the presence of atherosclerosis in sizable asymptomatic populations remains largely undetermined. After adjustment for traditional risk factors, our data demonstrate that associations disappear between IL-18 levels and subclinical atherosclerosis quantified by EBCT-determined CAC score as well as aortic plaque determined by MRI. These results concur with the observation that IL-18 levels do not associate with carotid atherosclerosis as assessed by intimal media thickness in a smaller study.19 One hypothesis suggests that traditional risk factors drive the associations between IL-18 levels and CVD. Therefore, IL-18 probably does not ...

Bartholin glands and bartholin cysts
Bartholin glands are two small glands that are located on each side of the vaginal opening. They produce fluid to lubricate the opening to the vagina. If the duct to a Bartholin gland becomes blocked, fluid builds up inside the gland, causing a cyst.. Bartholin cysts that do not cause symptoms do not need to be treated. A Bartholin cyst that is large, painful, or infected is usually drained and healed open to keep it from coming back (recurring). In rare cases, the gland and duct are surgically removed when a cyst or infection (abscess) recurs after repeated treatments. ...
Effect of Rosiglitazone on the Risk of Myocardial Infarction and Death from Cardiovascular Causes - ScienceOpen
Patients with type 2 diabetes are at high risk of fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction and stroke. There is indirect evidence that agonists of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) could reduce macrovascular complications. Our aim, therefore, was to ascertain whether pioglitazone reduces macrovascular morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes. We did a prospective, randomised controlled trial in 5238 patients with type 2 diabetes who had evidence of macrovascular disease. We recruited patients from primary-care practices and hospitals. We assigned patients to oral pioglitazone titrated from 15 mg to 45 mg (n=2605) or matching placebo (n=2633), to be taken in addition to their glucose-lowering drugs and other medications. Our primary endpoint was the composite of all-cause mortality, non fatal myocardial infarction (including silent myocardial infarction), stroke, acute coronary syndrome, endovascular or surgical intervention in the coronary ...

Roussouly described four sagittal alignment types based on sacral slope, lumbar lordosis, and location of lumbar apex. However, the lower limb, a newly described component of spinal malalignment compensation, is missing from this classification. This study aims to propose a full-body sagittal profile classification in an asymptomatic population based on full-body imaging. ...
Reply | JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions
We thank Drs. Paraskevas and Giannoukas for their appraisal of our work (1).. The purpose of our study was to analyze the impact of post-procedural asymptomatic cerebral ischemic lesions on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) after carotid artery stenting (CAS) on the hard endpoints of death, stroke, and myocardial infarction, which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been done before.. We completely agree that 1 limitation of our study is that neuropsychological testing was not performed. This, however, is very important because it is a matter of debate whether these lesions negatively affect cognitive function. We are thankful to Drs. Paraskevas and Giannoukas for drawing our attention to a small but very interesting study (2) that was published after our paper was submitted. This paper and other only recently published work (3) are important findings admonishing us to take those asymptomatic lesions seriously.. Obviously, we are just beginning to understand the meaning ...

Presenter(s): Josh Kidd, Cora Aytona, Chris Chase When a patient presents to a clinician with an apparent musculoskeletal problem, the clinician will aim to direct intervention at the body part they perceive to be the source of the patients problem. Hence, a basic requisite for the successful local management of extremity problems is that the symptoms are emanating from the extremity itself. Clinicians interpret the patients history and examination to differentiate between a spinal source of symptoms and an extremity source. Even though this differentiation process is pivotal in guiding management, it is fraught with challenges. If pain of spinal origin is interpreted incorrectly as a local extremity problem, it can initiate a cascade of poor decision making and inappropriate management. The challenges of differentiating between the spinal and extremity source of pain are compounded by the high prevalence of incidental extremity imaging findings in the asymptomatic population. This may be ...
