BACKGROUND: Maximal hyperemia is a prerequisite for the accurate measurement of fractional flow reserve (FFR). Although continuous infusion of adenosine via the femoral vein is considered to be the gold standard, this requires an additional invasive procedure for femoral vein access and is difficult to use during transradial coronary catheterization. ...

Abstract Background: In many studies, high-molecular-weight (HMW) adiponectin has been considered the active form of adiponectin. However, whether HMW adiponectin is a good surrogate marker for coronary artery disease still needs to be elucidated. Methods: We conducted a hospital-based cross-sectional study to examine the relationship between total, HMW or non-HMW ...

Two-dimensional "pencil-beam" navigator, placed on the right hemidiaphragm, is used for free-breathing late gadolinium enhancement of the left atrium in patients with atrial fibrillation. The pencil-beam navigator creates an inflow artifact in the right pulmonary veins and atrial wall that may obscure local pulmonary vein and left atrium scars. To ...

Temporal arteritis or giant cell arteritis is a systemic granulomatous vasculitis of medium and large-sized arteries, most frequently involving the temporal artery. It presents with headache, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and anemia. If untreated, complications like ischemic optic neuritis may even lead to blindness. Although very rare, scalp necrosis ...

Stiffening of the arteries results in increased pulse-wave velocity (PWV), the propagation velocity of the blood. Elevated aortic PWV has been shown to correlate with aging and atherosclerotic alterations. We extended a previous non-triggered projection-based cardiovascular MR method and demonstrate its feasibility by mapping the PWV of the aortic arch, ...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA), also called temporal arteritis, is a vasculitis that affects large and middle-sized blood vessels--with predisposition to the involvement of cranial arteries derived from the carotid artery--in individuals older than 50 years of age. Familial aggregation of GCA has been observed. Incidence of GCA is higher in ...

Pediatric patients with Takayasu arteritis were studied by analyzing clinical presentation, diagnostic images, response to multimodal therapy, and long-term outcome. Fourteen consecutive children and adolescents (mean age: 10 years) were diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis at our institution between 1995 and 2007. They were subjected to clinical and diagnostic studies including ...

A 63-year-old woman developed consecutive visual loss in the presence of chronic renal failure on hemodyalisis, arterial hypertension, and pulmonary hypertension treated with sildenafil. Temporal artery biopsy was negative for giant cell arteritis. Bilateral, consecutive non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy was diagnosed. The implications and potential risk of sildenafil use in ...

Ischaemic heart disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Patients typically present with chest pain and breathlessness either on exertion or at rest. Cardiac ischaemia can also lead to headache, although this is very rarely its only manifestation. Headache is mostly associated with migraine, cluster and tension ...

Use of TA-US for diagnostic investigation of giant cell arteritis (GCA) has been proposed but remains a matter of debate because of the heterogeneous findings. We retrospectively evaluated operating characteristics of temporal artery ultrasonography (TA-US) in a single teaching hospital. All subjects with suspected GCA had been seen between 2002 ...

Vasculitis may cause inflammation in any single or group of blood vessels. Traditionally, giant cell arteritis involves the extracranial branches of the carotid, and Takayasu arteritis affects the aorta and its major branches. These diseases are quite rare, but have the potential to be fatal. We describe the spectrum of ...

It is not established whether the increased risk of stroke in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA) is because of atherosclerosis, persistent arterial inflammation, or an iatrogenic effect of corticosteroids. This creates difficulties in choosing the most appropriate treatment. We report 2 patients with GCA who developed repeated strokes involving ...

Alteration of arterial elastic properties is known to occur in patients with arteritis. Velocity vector imaging (VVI) is a new technology to assess multi-dimensional regional mechanics in terms of velocity, strain, strain rate and displacement. The aim of the present study was to investigate the mechanical properties of the common ...

Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is an inflammatory vasculitis of aorta and its branches, its low incidence limited our recognition to this entity. We sometimes can confuse this desease with polyarteritis nodosa and other vasculitis when no conventional "big artery" involved in TA cases. Here we report a 26-year-old man with Takayasu's ...

Primary angiitis of the central nervous system (PACNS), also called primary CNS vasculitis, is an idiopathic inflammatory condition affecting only intracranial and spinal cord vessels, particularly medium-sized and smaller arteries and arterioles. Angiography and histopathology typically do not reveal evidence of systemic vasculitis.(1,2) Histopathology usually reveals granulomatous inflammation affecting arterioles ...

OBJECTIVE: The subtemporal approach for a superficial temporal artery-to-superior cerebellar artery bypass requires significant superior retraction that can injure the temporal lobe, compromise veins, and cause edema postoperatively. In contrast, the pretemporal approach requires posterolateral retraction that seems to be less injurious to the temporal lobe and better tolerated clinically. ...

Takayasu arteritis is a relatively rare inflammatory arteritis that can be associated with ocular manifestations. We report four patients with proven Takayasu arteritis; two patients manifested hypoperfusive ocular manifestations of ocular ischemic syndrome and anterior ischemic optic neuropathy whilst two others had exudative retinal detachment and papilledema as a result ...

Ultrasonography of temporal arteries is not commonly used in the approach of patients with suspected giant cell arteritis (GCA) in clinical practice. A meta-analysis of primary studies available through April 2004 concluded that ultrasonography could indeed be helpful in diagnosing GCA. We specifically re-examined the diagnostic value of the ultrasonography-derived ...

Takayasu's arteritis can involve the ostia of coronary arteries. We report a patient with Takayasu's arteritis involving the ostia of three large coronary arteries who was successfully treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with a drug-eluting stent (DES) and had a good clinical outcome after 12 months. A 37-year-old male ...

Chronic idiopathic granulomatous arteritis of the large vessels - and, specifically, "Takayasu's arteritis" and "giant cell arteritis" - is an unusual condition that rarely leads to stroke and is only occasionally associated with Crohn's disease. We report here on a unique case of a 56-year-old man with a 25-year history ...
