25-Hydroxyvitamin D and parathyroid hormone are not associated with carotid intima-media thickness or plaque in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
This study shows that the consistent lack of association of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone with carotid intima-media thickness and plaque suggests that these hormones may influence cardiovascular risk through pathways not reflected by carotid atherosclerosis.
Pulmonary hyperinflation and left ventricular mass: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis COPD Study.
Pulmonary hyperinflation, as measured by residual lung volume or residual lung volume to total lung capacity ratio, is associated with greater left ventricular mass, an important predictor of heart failure and cardiovascular mortality.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and serum lipoproteins: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.
This study found that, after adjustment for multiple metabolic risk factors, adiposity, and measures of insulin resistance, there may be a link between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and dyslipidemia.
Genetic associations with valvular calcification and aortic stenosis.
Genetic variation in the lipoprotein(a) locus, mediated by lipoprotein(a) levels, is associated with aortic valve calcification across multiple ethnic groups and with incident clinical aortic stenosis.
Relation of uric acid to serum levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, triglycerides, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and to hepatic steatosis.
High uric acid levels were associated with increased triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and hepatic steatosis, independent of metabolic syndrome and obesity, and with increased hsCRP independently of metabolic syndrome.
Rhinotillexis: a possible heuristic to reduce inappropriate noninvasive cardiac imaging?
Response to letter regarding article, "combined cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and C-reactive protein levels identify a cohort at low risk for defibrillator firings and death".
Association between traditional cholesterol parameters, lipoprotein particle concentration, novel biomarkers and carotid plaques in retired National Football League players.
We assessed whether low-density lipoprotein particle concentration (LDL-P) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein [hs-CRP] can identify subclinical atherosclerosis better than traditional cholesterol parameters in retired National Football League (NFL) players. Carotid artery plaques were common in retired NFL players and were strongly associated with LDL-P, especially among those with metabolic syndrome. hs-CRP was not associated with carotid plaques in this cohort.
Regional coronary endothelial function is closely related to local early coronary atherosclerosis in patients with mild coronary artery disease: pilot study.
There is an inverse relationship between coronary endothelial function and local coronary wall thickness in patients with coronary artery disease but not in healthy adults. These findings demonstrate that local endothelial-dependent functional changes are related to the extent of early anatomic atherosclerosis in mildly diseased arteries. This combined MRI approach enables the anatomic and functional investigation of early coronary disease.
