AIM To determine the clinical and dietary predictors of common carotid artery intima media thickness (CCA IMT) in a cohort of subjects with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. METHODS Participants with type 1 (n = 23) and type 2 diabetes (n = 127) had mean and mean maximum CCA IMT measured using B mode ultrasound. Dietary intake was measured using a food frequency questionnaire. Clinical and dietary predictors of mean and mean maximum CCA IMT were determined using linear regression analysis adjusted for potential confounders. RESULTS The main predictors of mean and mean maximum CCA IMT were age and weight. After ...
The tunica intima (New Latin "inner coat"), or intima for short, is the innermost tunica (layer) of an artery or vein. It is made up of one layer of endothelial cells and is supported by an internal elastic lamina. The endothelial cells are in direct contact with the blood flow. The tunicae of blood vessels are three layers-an inner layer (the tunica intima), a middle layer (the tunica media), and an outer layer (the tunica adventitia). In dissection, the inner coat (tunica intima) can be separated from the middle (tunica media) by a little maceration, or it may be stripped off in small pieces; but, because of its friability, it cannot be separated as a complete membrane. It is a fine, transparent, colorless structure which is highly elastic, and, after death, is commonly corrugated into longitudinal wrinkles. The inner coat consists of: A layer of pavement endothelium, the cells of which are polygonal, oval, or fusiform, and have very distinct round or oval nuclei. This endothelium is brought ...

Intima-media thickness (IMT), also called intimal medial thickness, is a measurement of the thickness of tunica intima and tunica media, the innermost two layers of the wall of an artery. The measurement is usually made by external ultrasound and occasionally by internal, invasive ultrasound catheters; see Intravascular ultrasound. Measurements of the total wall thickness of blood vessels can also be done using other imaging modalities. IMT is used to detect the presence of atherosclerosis in humans and, more contentiously, to track the regression, arrest or progression of atherosclerosis. Ultrasound IMT measurements were first proposed and validated in vitro by Paolo Pignoli in 1984 and further details were subsequently published in a highly cited article. The use of IMT as a non-invasive tool to track changes in arterial walls has increased substantially since the mid-1990s. Although IMT is predictive of future cardiovascular events, the usefulness of measuring change in IMT over time is ...
Differences in thyroid function status within the euthyroid range have been proposed to affect the development of (subclinical) atherosclerosis [1], as evidenced by a greater carotid artery intima media thickness and progression of coronary artery calcification in the context of low normal thyroid function, i.e. a higher thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) or a lower free thyroxine (FT4) thyroid hormone in the euthyroid range [2,3]. Importantly, with respect to high density lipoproteins (HDL) the concept is emerging that abnormalities in function rather than low concentrations of HDL cholesterol per se may give rise to impaired atheroprotective potential of this lipoprotein fraction ...
This proposal is currently approved by CHR (#H9577-18534-03C, exp date 3/26/04); the purpose of this new application is to split the currently approved protocol into a separate protocol with a separate PI. Data collected and patients seen under the previously approved protocol will be carried over into this new separate protocol. This is a longitudinal observational study of HIV-infected patients and HIV-negative control patients, and individuals with autoimmune diseases. We plan to obtain measurement of carotid artery intima media thickness (IMT) using high resolution ultrasound as a noninvasive means for tracking atherosclerotic progression. In addition, patients will undergo ct scan for coronary calcium and single slice abdominal ct scan to assess visceral fat. We will also measure lipid and lipoprotein levels, inflammatory markers, markers of CMV infection, thrombotic markers, atherogenic lipoproteins, and markers of immune function. Immunophenotyping will be performed on freshly collected ...
主動脈剝離(英語:aortic dissection;法語:dissection aortique;德語:Aortendissektion),又譯為「主動脈夾層」或「心血管動脈撕裂」,是因為主動脈血管內膜(英語:Tunica intima)受傷,使得血液可以流入主動脈壁各層之間,使血管層剝離(英語:Dissection (medical))的症狀[3]。大部份的情形下,在主動脈剝離時會有嚴重、撕裂狀的胸痛或是背痛(英語:Acute aortic syndrome)[1][2],同時會有嘔吐、冒汗、頭重腳輕等症狀[2]。因為無法提供足夠血液到其他器官,也會有像中風或腸繫膜缺血等症狀[2]。主動脈剝離後,因為無法提供心臟足夠的血液或是主動脈破裂(英語:Aortic rupture),可能很快會致命[2]。 主動脈剝離較常出現在有高血壓及主動脈瓣二葉畸形(英語:Bicuspid aortic ...
A previous animal study (16) reported a significant decrease of inflammation following implantation of dexamethasone-eluting stents in pig coronary arteries at 5 days. However, no beneficial effect on neointimal growth was observed at 28 days, which reinforces the need for appropriate animal models and drug dosage to simulate human atherosclerotic disease.. Furthermore, the local or systemic administration is of cardinal importance to determine the efficacy of glucocorticoids with respect to their antirestenotic properties. In contrast to corticosteroids, preclinical models using paclitaxel have shown effective suppression of neointima at short term. In a previous experimental model of healthy rabbits implanted with stents loaded with a lower dose of paclitaxel (42.0 μg), neointimal thickness was reduced by 48% compared to BMS at 28 days (12). However, as in our study, paclitaxel-DES were associated with significantly larger areas of fibrin deposition surrounding stent struts and sparse ...
Artery. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a transverse section through part of an artery. Red blood cells (erythrocytes, red) and platelets (pink) can be seen in the central canal (lumen). The lumen is lined with a layer called the tunica intima, which is made up of endothelial cells (blue) and elastic fibres (dark blue). This layer lies underneath a layer of smooth muscle called the tunica media (orange). The outermost layer of the artery is known as the tunica externa (red) which is mainly composed of collagen.

The significance of the strong P2Y2 expression observed in balloon-induced intimal lesions is not clear. Nevertheless, this strong expression could reflect an increased reactivity to extracellular nucleotides with consequent modulation of proliferation or vasoreactivity. Indeed, extracellular nucleotides, particularly ATP and UTP, have been shown to induce cell cycle progression and proliferation of cultured arterial SMCs3 4 5 6 7 and to induce a vasoconstriction in the absence of endothelial cells.11 12 13 Since both neointimal hyperplasia and vasoconstrictive remodeling have been found to be involved in postangioplasty restenosis,1 30 31 32 our data suggest that extracellular nucleotides might play a significant role in this process, at least as long as the functional endothelial cells, which control intimal thickening33 34 and nucleotide vasorelaxant effects,35 36 are not regenerated.. The increased P2Y2 receptor expression in the neointima may by itself be sufficient to enhance the local ...

Background: A metabolic syndrome associated with atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease has been seen in HIV (+) individuals receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Functional vascular changes can be non-invasively assessed and may precede the development of atherosclerosis.. Methods: We measured carotid artery intima media thickness (IMT) and brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) by vascular ultrasonography in 61 HIV (+) patients (mean age 41.8 ± 13 yrs, 88.5 % male) attending a tertiary care center, in 30 patients with angiographically documented CAD (positive control) and in 30 healthy subjects. Both control groups had similar age, sex and atherosclerotic risk factors to HIV infected patients. Carotid to femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV-Complior apparatus) was also measured in HIV (+) patients.. Results: By ANOVA, HIV patients had higher IMT than healthy controls and similar IMT to matched CAD patients (0.64±0.2 vs. 0.54±0.05 vs .0.66±0.08 mm respectively, ...
We have used carotid IMT rather than CHD as our outcome. Carotid IMT has been shown to be strongly associated with prevalent and incident CHD.13,18 It has been suggested that the difference in IMT between women and men may be explained by differences in luminal diameter.22 However, this has been shown not to be the case in the large Tromso study.14 There was a differential in the response between women and men in our study and a difference in the nature of the sampling frame for women and men. Men were survivors of a prospective cohort, whereas women were a newly selected random sample. While among the men responders did not appear to differ from non-responders with respect to age, women who responded were younger than those who did not and women were on average slightly younger than men in the final study sample. All results presented in this study are adjusted for age. Mean blood pressure, lipid levels, and waist-hip ratios for both women and men from this study are similar to those for ...
Continuous and dichotomous metabolic syndrome definitions in youth predict adult type 2 diabetes and carotid artery intima media thickness: the Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study
The KEEPS is designed to explore the hypothesis that early initiation of hormone therapy, in women who are at the inception of their menopause, will decrease the rate of accumulation of atherosclerotic plaque, indicating a likely delay in the onset of clinical cardiovascular disease. The study is designed as a multicenter, 4 year randomized clinical trial. It will evaluate the effectiveness of of 0.45 mg/day of oral conjugated equine estrogens or 50 mcg/day of transdermal estradiol via skin patch changed weekly (each in combination with cyclic oral, micronized progesterone, 200 mg daily for 12 days per month), versus placebo in preventing progression of carotid intimal medial thickness by sonogram and the accrual of coronary calcium in women aged 42-58 who are within 36 months of their final menstrual period at initiation of treatment. A number of secondary endpoints including biochemical and genetic risk factors for cardiovascular and thrombotic disease, and effects on cognition will also be ...
The walls of all blood vessels, except the smallest, have three layers, or tunics, that surround a central blood-containing space, the vessel lumen.. The innermost tunic is the tunica intima. The tunica intima contains the endothelium, the simple squamous epithelium that lines the lumen of all vessels. The endothelium is continuous with the endocardial lining of the heart, and its flat cells fit closely together, forming a slippery surface that minimizes friction so blood moves smoothly through the lumen. In vessels larger than 1 mm in diameter, a subendothelial layer, consisting of a basement membrane and loose connective tissue, supports the endothelium.. The middle tunic, the tunica media, is mostly circularly arranged smooth muscle cells and sheets of elastin. The activity of the smooth muscle is regulated by sympathetic vasomotor nerve fibers of the autonomic nervous system and chemicals. Depending on the bodys needs at any given moment, regulation causes either vasoconstriction (lumen ...
The major finding of this study is that GIT1 is an important regulator of vascular remodeling. Specifically, we found that GIT1 depletion inhibited intima formation after carotid ligation by 50%. In vivo and in vitro analysis showed a key role for GIT1 in VSMC proliferation, migration, and apoptosis during vascular remodeling (Figure III in the online-only Data Supplement). Furthermore, GIT1 is required for VSMC proliferation through PLCγ and ERK1/2 by regulating the expression of cell cycle-related proteins, such as cyclin D1. GIT1 is also essential for cell survival by regulating VSMC apoptosis through PLCγ and cell migration through PLCγ and ERK1/2.. VSMC proliferation and migration are key components in vascular remodeling.1,2 The present study shows that GIT1 expression is highly regulated by AngII and PDGF in vitro, and during vascular remodeling in vivo. The role of GIT1 in mediating VSMC proliferation was demonstrated by several assays, including in vitro cell count, [3H]-thymidine ...
Bronner Handwerger, ND. Assessing cardiovascular risk factors is always part of the naturopathic intake. The question arises as to how we assess these risks. We recognize that traditional markers like cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Lp(a), fibrinogen, homocysteine and even cardio CRP provide us with valuable information, along with family history. Although these are important to assess, they still do not give us the kind of reliable information we are looking for.. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S. for both men and women. Heart disease and stroke account for almost six million hospitalizations each year, and more than 40% of all people age 45 and older have some form of cardiovascular disease. Approximately 1.1 million Americans are expected to have a new or recurrent heart attack this year, and 60% of all deaths in the U.S. are attributed to cardiovascular disease. A more sobering statistic is that 40%-50% of all heart attack patients have a "normal" cholesterol or lipid profile, ...
Results A total of 76 patients were screened and 22 RA patients who were in low disease activity or remission were included. Patients with RA had significantly higher median cIMT, 0.53 (IQR0.13) mm compared to controls, 0.47 (IQR 0.14) mm, p=0.01. In RA patients, the cIMT had significant positive correlation with age (rs=0.84, p=0.00), systolic BP (rs=0.45, p=0.04), waist circumference (rs=0.43, p=0.04), total cholesterol (rs=0.54, p=0.01), BMI (rs=0.45, p=0.04) and serum IL-17 (rs=0.45, p=0.03) but negative correlation with total HDL (rs=-0.43, p=0.05). ...

N2 - Restenosis after angioplasty still remains a major problem for which neointimal formation appears to play an important role. Recent studies in vitro suggested that Rho kinase, a target protein of Rho, is important in various cellular functions. We thus examined whether Rho kinase is involved in the restenotic changes after balloon injury. In vivo gene transfer was performed immediately after balloon injury in both sides of the porcine femoral arteries with adenoviral vector encoding either a dominant negative form of Rho kinase (AdDNRhoK) or β-galactosidase (AdLacZ) as a control. One week after the transfer, ...
The Common carotid intima media thickness (CCIMT), an established indicator of atherosclerosis and an important functional predictor of cardiovascular system3,9 can effectively be used to measure progress of atherosclerosis and also to assess the success of interventions 2,8.. What is known is that measurement of CCIMT by non-invasive B-mode ultrasonography can detect atherosclerosis at the earliest preclinical stage and help in the prediction and diagnosis of asymptomatic vascular disease.3,14,15. Our study demonstrates the factors which have the strongest correlation with CCIMT and hence with pan-atherosclerosis.. In the present study, comparison of the cases (Group I) with the age- and sex-matched controls (Group II), revealed a higher duration of diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidaemia in the latter Group 2. These patients also had a significantly higher mean CCIMT value. With these points in mind let us consider the correlation of risk factors with CCIMT in our patients. In our analysis, ...
In this study, placement of a cuff around the femoral artery was used to investigate the role of plasminogen and fibrinogen in neointima formation and compensatory vascular remodeling. A smooth muscle cell-rich neointima developed in the arteries of mice within 28 days after cuff placement and was associated with marked elastic lamina degradation. Homozygous deficiencies of plasminogen or fibrinogen did not affect the extent of either neointima formation or elastic lamina breakdown. However, plasminogen was found to be critical in compensatory remodeling, via fibrin-dependent mechanisms, and appeared to prevent medial atrophy independently of fibrinolytic mechanisms.. Like the sequence of events that occur during wound healing, an initial accumulation of inflammatory cells and deposition of fibrin occurred in the adventitia of the arteries, followed by subsequent fibrin clearance and collagen scar formation. Although the detailed mechanisms for neointimal development after cuff placement have ...
In a series of experiments examining neointimal lesion formation in injured rat arteries, it became apparent that the migration of SMCs into the intima was a critical event. Early work focused on the role of plasminogen activators and the formation of plasmin as a necessary protease for SMC migration.10,11⇓ Recently, we have become interested in the role of MMPs in neointimal growth. Arteries express MMP-9 within hours after injury and continue to do so for up to 7 days, and this is accompanied with an increase in MMP-2 activation.1 We hypothesized that these MMPs regulate SMC migration, because many metastatic cells express these same proteinases, and we know that SMCs migrate into the intima at times when MMP activity is increased (,7 days). Furthermore, we were able to block SMC migration in injured arteries by the administration of an MMP inhibitor, although the size of the neointimal lesion 14 days after injury was identical to that of injured control arteries.8 This occurred despite the ...

VSMC and HUVEC proliferation and apoptosis were measured by BrdU and TdT staining, respectively. Balloon injury of the right carotid was produced in Wistar rats. Straight after the vascular injury, the balloon-dilated arteries were randomly transfected with p85active (n = 8), dominant negative p85 (p85DN) (n = 8) or green fluorescent protein (GFP, n = 6; controls). Transfection of p85active decreased VSMC proliferation in the absence of cAMP while cAMP inhibition of VSMC growth was prevented by p85DN. p85active formed a stable complex with ras proteins, resulting in a selective switch-off of ras effectors in VSMCs. On the other hand, p85active did not affect HUVEC growth in vitro. Interestingly, p85active significantly reduced VSMC and HUVEC apoptosis in vitro. In both vascular cell lineages, p85active increased while p85DN decreased Akt phosphorylation. Importantly, the in vivo transfection of activated p85-active significantly reduced VSMC proliferation and then neointimal formation after ...

In the present analysis, we observed no additional value of measurement of mean common CIMT in risk classification among 17 254 individuals free from symptomatic CVD, but with elevated blood pressure levels. For those at intermediate risk, the addition of common CIMT to an existing cardiovascular risk score is small but statistically significant. However, the decision on whether or not to implement common CIMT measurements in individuals with elevated blood pressure levels at intermediate risk depends on the balance between costs of additional risk assessment by CIMT measurements and effectiveness in preventing CVD.. In asymptomatic individuals with elevated blood pressure, guidelines recommend cardiovascular risk assessment and suggest screening for subclinical vascular damage.1,5-7 It has been suggested that providing a more accurate assessment of vascular damage related to hypertension may lead to a more precise stratification of CVD risk.20 As such, the 2007 ESH/ESC hypertension guidelines ...
