I am interested in atherogenesis which is the initiating process for atherosclerosis which in turn, can lead to ischaemic/ischemic stroke.
Is there a recognised process/algorithm - ideally using a software application - to identify synonyms?
I require the synonyms to enable a reverse lookup on a large corpus, to identify papers which refer - however minimally or obliquely to stroke.
I have conducted an informal, unstructured trawl of the journal 'Medical Hypotheses' and identified:
- stroke - cerebrovascular - CVA - arterial - vascular - vein - venous - hardening - accident - occlusion - disease - pathology - disfunction - plaque - lesion - induration) - venous - lesions - 'unstable' angine - 'vulnerable' plaque - ischaemia - ischemia - ischaemic - ischemic - angina - prinzmetal’s - pectoris - vasospastic - athero - sclerosis - sclerotic - atherosclerotic - atherosclerosis - atherogenesis - atherogenic - atherogenicity - atheroma - plaque - vascular disease - vascular diseases - pathogenesis - pathogenic - pathology - pathologic - pathological - disfunction - disfunctional - genesis - genic - atheroprotective - atheroprotection - hypothesis - hypotheses - hypothetical - possible - possibility - probable - probability - potential - potentiality
