PANEL DISCUSSION FOLLOWING THE SURVEY BY DR. BJï¿½RKERUD
- PATHOLOGICAL ANATOMY OF ATHEROSCLEROSIS AND ITS RELATION TO PERIPHERAL ARTERY GRAFTING. Martin, Peter // Angiology;Dec1958, Vol. 9 Issue 6, p349
Examines the pathological anatomy of atherosclerosis and its relation to peripheral artery grafting. Rare occurrence of atherosclerosis to affect the smaller vessels; Identification of the most common site of obstruction in the thigh; Diffusion of intimal disease throughout the length of the...
- Smoking is Associated with Dose-Related Increase of Intima-Media Thickness and Endothelial Dysfunction. Poredoš, Pavel; Orehek, Marta; Tratnik, Erika // Angiology;Mar1999, Vol. 50 Issue 3, p201
Cigarette smoking is firmly established as a risk factor for atherosclerosis. However, the exact mechanism causing smoking-related damage to the arterial wall and its relation to the atherosclerotic process is not known. Also unknown is the time delay between the start of smoking and the...
- Carotid Intima Media Thickness and Beyond. Barth, Jacques D. // Current Drug Targets - Cardiovascular & Haematological Disorders;Jun2004, Vol. 4 Issue 2, p129
Atherosclerosis evolves from the vascular wall. The initial build-up starts at the inner layers of the intima media complex of the artery. To track these phases of the beginning of disease requires a technique that can reliably detect and follow the extent and severity non-invasively over time....
- II. SURGICAL THERAPY OF OCCLUSIVE PERIPHERAL ATHEROSCLEROSIS. Estes, J. Earle // Angiology;Apr1958, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p114
Focuses on the surgical treatment of occlusive peripheral atherosclerosis. History of vascular surgery; Basic concepts of the atherosclerotic occlusion of the abdominal aorta and its branches; Clinical aspects of chromic arterial occlusion due to atherosclerosis.
- Other projects to receive grants. // Art Newspaper;Jul/Aug2013, Vol. 22 Issue 248, p34
The article focuses on projects that recieved grants including the conservation of three Tudor portraits at the National Portrait Gallery in London, England, the documentation of the preservation of the Watts Towers in Los Angeles, California and the restoration of a bronze statue in Milan, Italy.
- DISCUSSION. DePalma, Ralph G. // Vascular Surgery;Sep/Oct1997, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p677
Comments on a study which compared the neonatal structure of several arteries such as the internal mammary, the left coronary, right gastroepiploic and renal arteries. Discussion of the hypothesis that atherosclerosis development would seem to be directly related to medial thickness; Issue of...
- Immaturity of microvessels in haemorrhagic plaques is associated with proteolytic degradation of angiogenic factors. Dall, Julien Le; Ho-Tin-Noé, Benoît; Louedec, Liliane; Meilhac, Olivier; Roncal, Carmen; Carmeliet, Peter; Germain, Stéphane; Michel, Jean-Baptiste; Houard, Xavier // Cardiovascular Research;Jan2010, Vol. 85 Issue 1, p184
Aims: We investigated the causes of microvessel immaturity and destabilization in human atherosclerotic lesions.
- arteriosclerosis. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p68
An encyclopedia entry for "arteriosclerosis" is presented. It refers to a group of disorders that cause thickening and loss of elasticity of artery walls. It identifies atherosclerosis as the most common type of arteriosclerosis. Other types are medial arteriosclerosis and Monckeberg's...
- Motion Analysis of the Carotid Artery Wall and Plaque Using B-Mode Ultrasound. Golemati, Spyretta; Stoitsis, John; Nikita, Konstantina S. // Vascular Disease Prevention;Oct2007, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p296
Motion of the arterial wall and atheromatous plaque, especially in the longitudinal direction, has recently gained attention as a determinant of carotid atherosclerosis. Vessel wall motion, caused by blood pressure, blood flow and tethering to the surrounding tissue, may be responsible for...
