Internal carotid artery endarterectomy using synthetic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch (W.L.Gore Associates, Newark, Delaware) under general anesthesia. Shunt for maintaining brain blood flow was not used in these operations. After endarterectomy, carotid plaque was carefully placed in 10 buffered formalin for further processing. Postoperatively, patients were normally recovered and left h

Samples were stored in aliquots at -80 until analysis. For hematological determinations, EDTA tubes were used and measurements were performed immediately. White blood cells (WBC), platelets (PLT), hematocrit (HCT), and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) were automatically measured in hematological analyzer (Beckman Coulter LH 750). Thrombosis related parameters as fibrinogen, antithrombin III, prote

Sitive family history of confirmed cardiovascular diseases considering first degree relatives was completed. Hypertension, when the patient was not taking any medication, was defined as systolic blood pressure 140 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure 90 mmHg and diabetes mellitus as two fasting plasma glucose levels of 126 mg/dL or higher. Patient medication was recorded in detail and categorized

Citrate buffer pH 6.0. Slides were left to cool down in the antigen retrieval solution for 20 minutes. Endogenous peroxidase activity was quenched by first incubating the specimens for 5 min in 3 hydrogen peroxide (supplied by user). The specimens were then incubated with the primary antibody against Apo-J (clone sc-6420, goat polyclonal antibody, Santa Cruz Biotechnology Inc, CA) in a dilution 1
