BACKGROUND The structure and composition of aortic atherosclerotic plaques are associated with the risk of future cardiovascular events. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging may allow accurate visualization and characterization of aortic plaques. METHODS AND RESULTS We developed a noninvasive MR method, free of motion and blood flow artifacts, for(More)
Aortic artery dissection is a rare but well-recognized complication of Turner's syndrome. Isolated carotid or vertebral artery dissection has not previously been reported. The authors report the clinical and magnetic resonance imaging findings in a 30-year-old woman with Turner's syndrome who developed a high cervical spinal cord infarction with a(More)
BACKGROUND Exposure of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) to excessive cyclic stretch such as in hypertension causes a shift in their phenotype. The focal adhesion protein zyxin can transduce such biomechanical stimuli to the nucleus of both endothelial cells and VSMCs, albeit with different thresholds and kinetics. However, there is no distinct vascular(More)
We investigated the effect of Syzygium cumini(L.) Skeels seed extract on the oxidative stress of brain cortical tissues of alcohol-treated rats. The in vitro antioxidative effect of methnolic S. cumini seed extract was initially compared with those of the buytylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT) and Vitamin C, by determining their DPPH-free radical scavenging(More)
