Evidence for altered inflammatory and repair responses in symptomatic carotid plaques from elderly patients.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Most acute cardiovascular events are caused by rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque. The incidence of cardiovascular events increases with age and inflammation is generally considered to be the main cause of increased plaque vulnerability. However, the relationship between age and plaque inflammation has not yet been fully clarified. The aim of our study was to determine if age-dependent plaque vulnerability is associated with increased plaque inflammation.
