OBJECTIVES To explore the diagnostic accuracies of anti-apolipoproteinA-1 (anti-ApoA-1) IgG and anti-phosphorylcholine (anti-PC) IgM alone, expressed as a ratio (anti-ApoA-1 IgG/anti-PC IgM), and combined with the Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) score for non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) (NSTEMI-TIMI score) to create a(More)

A stenosis of the internal carotid artery may cause 10-20% of all ischemic strokes. In symptomatic patients, carotid revascularization is indicated in the presence of a stenosis 50%. in asymptomatic patients, the indication for revascularization based on randomized trials is given at > or = 60% stenosis, as long as the estimated perioperative death or(More)
