According to the theory of ox-idative stress, atherosclerosis is the resultof the oxidative modification of low densi-ty lipoproteins (LDL) in the arterial wallby reactive oxygen species (ROS).… Expand
Adherence to the Mediterranean food pattern predicts the prevalence of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes and obesity, among healthy adults; the accuracy of the MedDietScore.
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the accuracy of a diet score in relation to hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes and obesity. METHODS A diet score (range 0-55) has been developed that… Expand
A Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
C oronary arteries ectasias are considered, in their majority, a variation of the manifestation of atheromatous disease. Similar aneurysmal lesions may be encountered in other vascular networks too,… Expand

The vascular endothelium is a monolayer of cells between the vessel lumen and the vascular smooth muscle cells. Nitric oxide (NO) is a soluble gas continuously synthesized from the amino acid… Expand
Acute Systemic Inflammation Increases Arterial Stiffness and Decreases Wave Reflections in Healthy Individuals
Background— Aortic stiffness is a marker of cardiovascular disease and an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk. Although an association between inflammatory markers and increased arterial… Expand
