Aims null We aimed to determine the characteristics and vascular outcomes of stroke in renal transplant (RT) recipients and compare them with those in patients on hemodialysis (HD) and those with no renal replacement therapy (RRT). null Methods null In this prospective observational study, 717 patients (mean age, 70.8 years; male, 60.5%) with acute ischemic stroke within one week of onset were consecutively enrolled and followed for one year. The patients were classified into three groups: (1) l...

Aims null We aimed to validate the predictive value of the ABCD3-I score for short-term and long-term stroke risk after transient ischemic attack (TIA) and to evaluate the influence of symptomatic intracranial artery stenosis (sICAS) on the performance of ABCD3-I. null Methods null We recruited TIA patients from the Third China National Stroke Registry study. Outcome parameters were stroke events during the 14-day, 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month points. The area under the curve (AUC) was calcula...

Aim To examine whether improvement in flow-mediated endothelium-dependent dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) has an additive effect on achieving optimal goals of traditional risk factors to reduce cardiovascular risk in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods We assessed 323 patients with CAD and impaired vascular function, defined as an impaired FMD of the brachial artery (<5.5%) and increased baPWV (>1,440 cm/sec). After FMD and ...

Aim Adiponectin (APN) exhibits different atheroprotective effects, and we have previously reported that APN function is modulated by its binding proteins, E-selectin ligand 1, Mac-2 binding protein, and cystatin C. In the present study, we aimed to identify a novel atheroprotective mechanism of APN via C-C motif chemokine 2 (CCL2). Methods We conducted iMAP®-intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in 111 Japanese male patients with stable angina. The plaque characteristics were determined where "plaque ...

AIM The aim of the current study was to describe the clinical profile, frequency of in-hospital complications, and predictors of adverse events in patients undergoing endovascular therapy (EVT) for acute limb ischemia (ALI), and to compare them with those of patients undergoing EVT for chronic symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD). METHODS The current study compared 2,398 cases of EVT for ALI with 74,171 cases of EVT for chronic symptomatic PAD performed between January 2015 and December 2...

Aim The triglyceride-glucose index (TyG index) is proposed as a surrogate parameter for insulin resistance (IR) and, when elevated, is related to increased cardiovascular risks. Whether the TyG index is of great value in predicting adverse prognosis for individuals diagnosed with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), who received elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and without recognized diabetes remains unclear. Methods Overall, 1,510 subjects diagnosed wit...

Aims Inflammation and hypertension contribute to the progression of atherosclerotic aneurysm in the aorta. Vascular cell metabolism is regarded to modulate atherogenesis, but the metabolic alterations that occur in atherosclerotic aneurysm remain unknown. The present study aimed to identify metabolic pathways and metabolites in aneurysmal walls and examine their roles in atherogenesis. Methods Gene expression using microarray and metabolite levels in the early atherosclerotic lesions and aneurys...

Aim Kinin B1 receptor (KB1R) was shown to be up-regulated in human carotid atherosclerotic lesions. Serum KB1R levels were also reported to be high in patients with stroke. However, KB1R deficiency increased atherosclerotic lesions. Therefore, the role of KB1R in atherosclerosis remains unclear. Moreover, no study has reported blood KB1R levels in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods We measured plasma KB1R levels in 375 patients undergoing coronary angiography. The severity of C...

Aim null short-term blood pressure variability (BPV) as a risk factor of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events has been investigated. However, its association with atherosclerotic plaque vulnerability remains unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the association between short-term BPV and intracranial atherosclerotic plaque vulnerability. null Methods null this is a cross-sectional analysis of 267 ischemic stroke patients with symptomatic intracranial atherosclerosis (mean ag...
