OBJECTIVE Atherosclerotic large vessel disease is potentially involved in the pathogenesis of cerebral small vessel disease related to occurrence of white matter lesions (WMLs) in the brain. We aimed to assess morphological and functional carotid vessel wall properties in relation to WML using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in myocardial infarction (MI)(More)
AIMS Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is potentially life-threatening and requires close follow-up to prevent aortic dissection. Aortic stiffness and size are considered to be coupled. Regional aortic stiffness in patients with TAA is unknown. We aimed to evaluate coupling between regional pulse wave velocity (PWV), a marker of vascular stiffness, and aortic(More)
Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has made tremendous advances over the past years, providing accurate evaluation of left ventricular mass, volumes and function [1–4]. CMR has shown unique abilities in characterizing myocardial tissue composition. In particular, high-resolution contrast-enhanced CMR has been used to visualize myocardial fibrosis with(More)
