Carotid artery

The Relation of Polysomnographic Parameters to Carotid and Brachial Artery Intima-media Thickness in Patients with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.225
Synopsis: 
In the present report we investigated whether the effect of intermittent and continuous hypoxia on carotid and brachial artery intima-media thicknesses (IMTs) is similar. We showed that both intermittent and continuous hypoxia result in remarkable alterations in carotid-IMT and brachial-IMT.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate carotid (C) and brachial (BA) artery intima-media thickness (IMT) in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) along with factors predicting CIMT and BA-IMT increase.

Comparative Analysis of Mechanical Properties of Common Carotid Artery between Young and Old Specimen

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.218
Synopsis: 
The morphology and longitudinal tensile properties of carotid artery in elderly group of changed.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aimed to perform the carotid artery stretching experiments with young and elderly corpse for the study of carotid atherosclerosis pathogenesis and biomechanical basis.

Methods: 15 carotid arteries were randomly selected from young and elderly groups, respectively, for the longitudinal tensile test, and 1 specimens of each group was randomly selected for the morphological observation.
