  • ultrasound
  • In the 1980s, with the introduction of vascular ultrasound, the true dimensions of carotid disease became apparent. (hindawi.com)
  • The first paper, which focused on the recurrence of stenosis after treatment, reported results from 413 CAVATAS participants who had a neck ultrasound every year to examine the carotid artery for restenosis. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Carotid ultrasound was performed at age 81, and cerebral blood flow (CBF) was measured with SPECT at age 82. (hindawi.com)
  • In most cases, carotid ultrasound is performed in association with TIA or stroke and, in case of significant stenosis, an operative treatment or pharmacotherapy is initiated as a secondary prevention. (hindawi.com)
  • When estimating cerebral blood supply and carotid stenosis with ultrasound in the elderly, one must be aware, that age and DBP-level decrease PSV, while SBP and pulse pressure increase PSV in elderly [ 8 , 9 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Typically duplex ultrasound scan is the only investigation required for decision making in carotid stenosis as it is widely available and rapidly performed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The multidisciplinary approach combining angiography, high-resolution ultrasound, thrombolytic therapy, plaque pathology, histochemistry, coagulation studies, and more recently molecular biology has led to the realisation that carotid plaque rupture is a key mechanism underlying the development of cerebrovascular events. (wikipedia.org)
  • With Maria Dicicco, RVT, he pioneered the measurement of total plaque area (TPA) in a patient's carotid artery using ultrasound technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • unilateral
  • Unilateral visual loss in bright light may indicate ipsilateral carotid artery occlusive disease and may reflect the inability of borderline circulation to sustain the increased retinal metabolic activity associated with exposure to bright light. (wikipedia.org)
  • regression
  • Younger age, high grades of stenosis, absence of discrete white areas in the plaque, and taking lipid lowering therapy were independent baseline predictors of increased incidence of regression. (nih.gov)
  • intimal
  • Measurement of peak systolic velocities (PSVs) in ICA has been used worldwide, and maximal PSV, defined between 1.25-1.4 m/s, was used delimitate stenosis to maximum 50%, sometimes with mandatory plaque or intimal thickening visible [ 7 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The incidence of mural thrombosis following three types of experimental intimal injuries at common carotid arteries, was investigated in a series of 12 dogs. (ebscohost.com)
  • dysfunction
  • Can the level of fatigue I am experiencing be due to the carotid stenosis and yet not show any brain dysfunction on the MRI, CT or SPEC scan? (medhelp.org)
  • Early descriptions of "organic impairment" associated with angiographically demonstrable carotid stenosis failed to provide data on areas of cognitive dysfunction. (ahajournals.org)
