Such calculators did not include Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)-based biomarker called estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The...

AbstractMost of the acute ischemic events, such as acute coronary syndromes and stroke, are attributed to vulnerable plaques. These lesions have common histological and pathophysiological features, including inflammatory cell infiltration, neo-angiogenesis, remodelling, haemorrhage predisposition, thin fibrous cap, large lipid core, and micro-calcifications. Early detection of the presence of a plaque prone to rupture could be life-saving for the patient; however, vulnerable plaques usually cause non-haemodynamically significant stenosis, and anatomical imaging techniques often underestimate, or may not even detect, these ...

Sharing borders with Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan, you find the world’s largest landlocked country, the Republic of Kazakhstan. Conversely, with its population of over 18 million spanning across an area of 2,724,900 km², the country also has one of the lowest population densities worldwide, at less than 6 people per square kilometre. Being a relatively new republic and with its widespread inhabitants, Kazakhstan poses as an adequate hub for digital health to expand. Such a young republic’s ministry of health can develop around newer technologies and strategies brought forth wi...

Discussion The term, cerebral palsy, or CP has gone through many iterations with the first description in 1861 by W.J. Little who described it as “The condition of spastic rigidity of the limbs of newborn children.” The most recent definition is from Rosenbaun et al. in 2007 which states it is “a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cog...

ConclusionUltrafast ultrasound imaging is an innovative, easily accessible technique that provides imaging modalities on top of the conventional B-mode. Ultrafast ultrasound biomarkers such as plaque stiffness heterogeneity, WSS and intraplaque micro-flows could help to define the vulnerability of the carotid plaque in order to stratify patients that could benefit most from endarterectomy or intensive medical therapy.
