Relationship of carotid plaque echomorphology to presenting symptom.
BACKGROUND Attempts to stratify carotid plaques according to clinical risk using single longitudinal view (SLV) echomorphology have not been uniformly successful. We compared SLV grey scale medianExpand

Jugular venous neurone specific enolase (NSE) increases following carotid endarterectomy under general, but not local, anaesthesia.
INTRODUCTION Previous studies indicate that local (LA) rather than general anaesthesia (GA) for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is associated with reflex hypertension and preservation of cerebralExpand

Transcatheter injection of thrombin in the treatment of an intra-abdominal pseudo-aneurysm.
Routine management of non-anastomotic pseudo-aneurysms (PA) in the extremities has changed from open surgical repair to non-surgical techniques over the last 10 years. Such methods includeExpand

Endovascular stenting of a persistent sciatic artery aneurysm via retrograde popliteal approach: a durable option.
We report a case of acute lower limb ischaemia caused by a persistent sciatic artery aneurysm in a 55-year-old woman who was successfully managed by endovascular stenting via a retrograde poplitealExpand

A new method for characterizing carotid plaque: multiple cross-sectional view echomorphology.
PURPOSE This study compares the ability of computer-derived B-mode ultrasound gray-scale measurements from a single longitudinal view (SLV) versus multiple cross-sectional views (MCSV) toExpand

Gaps in awareness of peripheral arterial disease in Sri Lanka: a cross sectional study
BackgroundPeripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an emerging problem in Sri Lanka, particularly with the ageing population. A considerable number of patients are detected at a late stage with severeExpand

A modification to the standard technique for carotid endarterectomy allowing removal of intact endarterectomy specimens: implications for research and quality control of preoperative imaging.
Introduction requiring a shunt. In those that do, the shunt can be inserted after plaque removal which takes 2–3 min. Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) specimens are the main source of freshExpand

Changes in carotid plaque echomorphology with time since a neurologic event.
PURPOSE Symptomatic carotid plaques are characterized by reduced fibrous tissue content, increased lipid content, intraplaque hemorrhage, and cap rupture. This confers an increased stroke risk.Expand
