Artery problems are the cause of most stokes: Study

“Don’t blame the brain” is the message from the U.S. based Society for Vascular Surgery. To mark May 2017 being Stroke Awareness Month, the research group is discussing the causes of ischemic strokes.

New detector leads to early atherosclerosis detection

A new, non-invasive method to assess inflammation has been developed. The aim is to use the device for the early identification of atherosclerotic plaques before they rupture. Early detection helps to treat heart disease.

Nanotechnology used to combat heart disease

Nanomedicine represents one of the most promising areas of medical technology. In a new application, researchers have used nanoparticles to address the effects of atherosclerosis.

Can statins lower risk of artery atherosclerosis strokes?

Hiroshima - The results of a new Japanese study suggest statins could reduce the occurrence of strokes that occur due to larger artery atherosclerosis.

New attempt to slow down heart disease

Researchers have developed a potential treatment for atherosclerosis that targets a master controller protein, which appears to trigger the process.
