Atherosclerosis: Open Access (Omics Publishing S.L) has announced almost 50% discount on article processing charge to commemorate its 10th Anniversary.

Atherosclerosis: Open Access is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that focuses and welcomes submissions on all aspects of Coronary Heart disease, Stroke, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, arteriosclerosis, Coronary Atherosclerosis, intracranial atherosclerosis etc.  

It gives us great pleasure to announce the call for paper on the occasion of 10th Anniversary of the Journal at special and hefty discount of up to 50 percent on one-time article processing charge. Prospective academicians and scientists are encouraged to utilize this opportunity to get their articles reviewed, processed and published at relatively faster pace and at lower charges. In addition to this, the authors who publish with us during the year-long celebrations will also be eligible for academic awards recommended by the editorial panel.

The Archive page contains wide variety of articles such as Research / Review / Case reports / short communication / Mini review / Prospective / Letter to Editors Etc. We would like introduce a Mini - Review which has been spread to the widest audience of experts; and thus increased in readership, citations and altimetry score.

Title: “Biomarkers of Atherosclerosis: Is the Evaluation Essential Preoperatively?

Abstract: Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory condition leading to various cardiovascular as well as cerebrovascular events and peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Presence of significant atherosclerosis leads to perioperative adverse events, morbidity and mortality in the high risk surgical population. The usual methods for evaluating the like hood of adverse cardiovascular or cerebrovascular events postoperatively in these set of patients depends primarily on scoring system and functional status of the cardiovascular system during preoperative assessment. The pre-existing disease activity and possible postoperative adverse cardiovascular event (CVE) can be estimated to some degree from the preoperative levels of biomarkers associated with atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory process in the blood vessels that results in the formation of atheromatous plaque over the endothelial lining of blood vessels leading to stiffness and loss of elasticity of the vessel, stenosis of the artery, aneurysm formation, plaque rupture and dysfunction of endothelial cell lining. Preexisting atherosclerosis may lead to acute unanticipated myocardial infarction during the perioperative period. Unanticipated arrhythmia, congestive cardiac failure, acute coronary syndrome and cerebrovascular accidents are some other perioperative adverse events which can cause major postoperative morbidity and mortality. Apart from the various non-biochemical tests available for risk stratification, measurement of biomarkers in the blood during perioperative period can provide a clue for postoperative CVE.
