Uveitis is a chronic inflammatory disease. Chronic inflammation has been shown to have a role in pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the most important risk factor of cardiovascular diseases and is shown to start as early as childhood. In this study, we investigated the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis in children with uveitis. Seventy five patients who were diagnosed as having uveitis in ophthalmology and pediatric rheumatology clinics were included in the study. Patients with hypertension, obesity, dyslipidemia, diabetes, and with history of early cardiovascular disease were excluded...

The relationship between chronic hemolysis with subsequent iron overload, inflammation, and premature atherosclerosis has been documented in hemolytic anemias, particularly β-thalassemia. However, no such relationship has been established in sickle cell disease (SCD). We sought to evaluate SCD as a risk factor for early vascular insult by measuring carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and plasma chitotriosidase and to assess the role of the latter as a potential quantitative indicator of vascular inflammation and atherogenesis...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality and morbidity, due to the combined effects of traditional and non-traditional cardiovascular risk factors (CV). A serum uric acid (SUA) level has been suggested as one of the non-traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Cardiovascular risk can be assessed by looking at the subclinical atherosclerosis such as ultrasound (US)-measured carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT). This paper aimed to determine the role of SUA as a cardiovascular risk factor, along with the traditional cardiovascular risk factors and inflammation, among RA population...

BACKGROUND: The major burden of cardiovascular disease mortality around the globe is due to atherosclerosis and its complications. Hence its early detection and management with easily accessible and noninvasive methods are valuable. Aortic velocity propagation (AVP) through color M-mode of the proximal descending aorta determines aortic stiffness, reflecting atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to find the utility of AVP in predicting coronary artery disease (CAD) burden assessed through SYNTAX (SYNergy between percutaneous coronary intervention with TAXus and cardiac surgery) score and compared with carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), which is an established surrogate marker of atherosclerosis...
