Background: This study aimed to investigate the association between retinal microvascular abnormalities and the risk of incident stroke and its subtypes in the general Japanese population.Methods: A total of 12 965 residents aged 40-74 years without a history of stroke and/or coronary heart disease underwent retinal photography during the annual health checkups of four Japanese communities between 1990 and 1999. Retinal microvascular abnormalities, such as the presence or absence of generalized arteriolar narrowing, focal arteriolar narrowing, arteriovenous nicking, enhanced arteriolar light reflex, and retinal hemorrhages were graded using standard protocols.

Objective: : Arterial hypertension is a common complication in patients with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD), occurring in 33-75% of children when measured by office blood pressure (OBP). Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a superior tool for investigating blood pressure relative to OBP. The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence and control of hypertension in children with ARPKD based on ABPM. Read More

Increased fibrin generation and reduced fibrinolytic potential have been detected using global coagulation assays in several hypercoagulable states including cardiovascular disease and venous thromboembolism. We aimed in this study to define the impact of age, sex and race on fibrin generation and lysis using the Overall Haemostatic Potential (OHP) assay in a group of stringently defined healthy adults. Healthy adult patients not receiving anticoagulation and without a history of thrombotic disease were prospectively recruited. Read More
