Carotid plaque pathology: thrombosis, ulceration, and stroke pathogenesis. (Stroke. 2005) "BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between ulceration, thrombus, and calcification of carotid artery atherosclerotic plaques and symptoms of ipsilateral or contralateral stroke. ? CONCLUSIONS: Carotid plaque ulceration and thrombosis are more prevalent in symptomatic patients. Ulceration is more common in symptomatic patients regardless of side of carotid symptoms, whereas thrombus is associated with ipsilateral symptoms and plaque ulceration. Preoperative identification of carotid ulceration and thrombus should lead to greater efficacy of stroke prevention by carotid endarterectomy."


Stroke prevention in diabetic and other high cardiovascular risk patients. (Curr Diab Rep. 2005) "Diabetes is a major risk factor for stroke that is usually associated with risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, albuminuria, and dyslipidemia. Furthermore, atrial fibrillation and heart failure, two of the most important risk factors of stroke, are common in the diabetic population. With the rising epidemic of diabetes, the incidence of stroke is also on the rise. ? In this review, we examine the epidemiologic and the pathophysiologic association between stroke and diabetes, highlighting the population-based stroke preventive measures."
