BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: It is not conclusive that magnetic resonance (MR)-based carotid atherosclerotic plaque assessment identifies high-risk features associated with cerebrovascular events. We aimed to systematically summarize the association of MR imaging (MRI)-determined intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH), lipid-rich necrotic core (LRNC), and thinning/rupture of the fibrous cap (TRFC) with subsequent ischemic events. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a comprehensive literature search evaluating the association of MRI-based carotid plaque composition with ischemic outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH) and ulceration of carotid atherosclerotic plaques have been associated with vulnerability while calcification has been conventionally thought protective. However, studies suggested calcification size and location may increase plaque vulnerability. This study explored the association between calcium configurations and ulceration with IPH. METHODS: One hundred thirty-seven consecutive symptomatic patients scheduled for carotid endarterectomy were recruited...

Background: Atherosclerotic intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH) is a source of free hemoglobin that binds the haptoglobin protein and forms a complex cleared by CD163 macrophages. Compared to the other common haptoglobin genotypes, hemoglobin-haptoglobin2-2 complex has the lowest affinity for tissue macrophages resulting in lower rate of hemoglobin uptake and increased oxidative burden. We hypothesized that haptoglobin2-2 patients' failure to clear hemoglobin results in a greater prevalence and progression of IPH...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the association of ultrasonic texture features (severity of stenosis, grey scale median, plaque area, juxtaluminal black area [JBA], and discrete white areas) previously shown to be independent predictors for stroke with established histologic features of plaque instability. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed involving 70 patients scheduled for carotid endarterectomy. Before surgery, carotid plaque texture features were obtained with ultrasound after normalization using commercially available software (LifeQ Medical, Nicosia, Cyprus)...

Human and animal studies have revealed a stabilization of atherosclerotic plaques by statins. However, the stabilization of human carotid plaques has not been thoroughly described pathologically. This analysis explored the relationship between statin therapy and plaque stability in carotid endarterectomy (CEA) specimens. We analyzed specimens harvested between May 2015 and February 2017, from 79 consecutive patients presenting with > 70% carotid artery stenoses, of whom 66 were untreated (group 1) and 13 treated (group 2) with a statin...

BACKGROUND: Many embolic strokes are of undetermined source (ESUS). Carotid artery intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH), an unstable component of atherosclerosis, may be an under-recognized etiology in patients with ESUS. We investigated the prevalence of carotid IPH detected noninvasively by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: This pilot study analyzed data from a prospective cohort of patients with a recent ESUS who underwent MRI for carotid IPH assessment. All patients had carotid artery stenosis of less than 50%...

OBJECTIVE: New diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) lesions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after carotid artery stenting (CAS) are associated with an increased risk of future cerebrovascular events. Therefore, we evaluated the association between the expression levels of serum inflammatory markers and new DWI lesions after CAS and the presence of intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH). We also explored the mechanisms underlying this association. METHODS: A total of 225 inpatients with severe carotid artery stenosis were consecutively enrolled in this cohort study...

Objective: Measurement of the degree of stenosis is not enough to decide on the treatment strategy for patients with carotid stenosis. Plaque morphology examination is needed for such a decision-making. Thus, we evaluated the usefulness of plaque magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to decide on the modality of treatment for patients with carotid atherosclerotic plaques. Materials and Methods: Fifteen patients presenting with carotid stenosis between 2014 and 2016 were included...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Men differ from women in the manifestation of atherosclerosis and iron metabolism. Intraplaque hemorrhage and hemoglobin (Hb) catabolism by macrophages are associated with atherosclerotic lesion instability. The study aims were to investigate sex differences in (1) lesion severity in relation to blood Hb, (2) iron homeostasis in human carotid plaques, and (3) macrophage polarization within atheroma. METHODS: The carotid artery samples from 39 men and 23 women were immunostained with cell markers for macrophages, smooth muscle cells, ferritin, and TfR1 (transferrin receptor 1), which were further analyzed according to sex in relation to iron, Hb, and lipids in circulation...

Purpose To develop a three-dimensional (3D) high-spatial-resolution time-efficient sequence for use in quantitative vessel wall T1 mapping. Materials and Methods A previously described sequence, simultaneous noncontrast angiography and intraplaque hemorrhage (SNAP) imaging, was extended by introducing 3D golden angle radial k-space sampling (GOAL-SNAP). Sliding window reconstruction was adopted to reconstruct images at different inversion delay times (different T1 contrasts) for voxelwise T1 fitting. Phantom studies were performed to test the accuracy of T1 mapping with GOAL-SNAP against a two-dimensional inversion recovery (IR) spin-echo (SE) sequence...

OBJECTIVE: Magnetic resonance of the carotid arteries provides important insight into plaque composition and vulnerability in addition to the traditional measure of stenosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of MR imaging as a first-line modality to assess carotid disease and guide management for high-risk patients with <50% stenosis. METHODS: Using TreeAge Pro, a cost-effectiveness simulation was conducted comparing two strategies: (a) standard of care first-line carotid duplex ultrasound (DUS) with regular follow-up, vs (b) first-line MR assessment of stenosis and intraplaque haemorrhage (MRIPH) in which patients with IPH received annual DUS surveillance and immediate carotid endarterectomy in case of plaque progression...
