  1. 1. Assessment of Left Ventricular Dysfunction and Remodelling by Determination of Atrioventricular Plane Displacement and Simplified Echocardiography

    University dissertation from Ronnie Willenheimer, Department of Cardiologi, Malmö University Hospital, S-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Ronnie Willenheimer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; simplified echocardiography; Cardiovascular system; atrioventricular plane displacement; diagnosis; screening; heart failure; prognostication; latent heart failure; left ventricular dysfunction; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Heart failure is a common disease characterised by poor prognosis and frequent hospitalisations, constituting a major economic burden to society. Mortality and morbidity can be reduced by optimal treatment, requiring objective evaluation of cardiac function and anatomy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition and aspirin in congestive heart failure

    University dissertation from Tord Juhlin, Department of Cardiology, Malmö University Hospital, 205 02 MALMÖ, SWEDEN

    Author : Tord Juhlin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ARBs; clinical trial; renal function; congestive heart failure; ischaemic heart disease; NSAIDs; ACE-inhibitors; aspirin; dose dependency; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors act by decreasing production of angiotensin II and by potentiating the effects of bradykinin by inhibition of its breakdown. Bradykinin exerts part of its effects via vasodilating prostaglandins. Since the cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibitors, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Transesophageal Echocardiography in Clinical Decision-Making in Patients with Stroke or Atrial Fibrillation

    University dissertation from Cardiology

    Author : Anders Roijer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; stroke; cardioversion; Transesophageal echocardiography; embolic sources; atrial fibrillation;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis is the clinical use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in patients with stroke or atrial fibrillation. Subjects were examined with echocardiography and sonography of the carotid artery. A control group of randomly selected volunteers without cerebrovascular disease was compared to patients with ischemic stroke. READ MORE

  4. 4. Factors influencing adherence to risk factor modification in patients with coronary heart disease

    University dissertation from Kardiologiska kliniken, Universitetssjukhuset MAS. Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper. Medicinska fakulteten. Lunds Universitet

    Author : Carin Alm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]

    Abstract : Adherence to lifestyle modification and pharmacological treatment is of great importance in order to achieve maximum benefits of preventive measures after a cardiac event. Unfortunately, patients are neither adopting adequate lifestyle changes nor do they adhere to prescribed medication. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects on coronary heart disease prevention in clinical practice

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Martin Stagmo; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; prevention; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; nurse-led clinics; risk stratification; Implementation; Coronary hert disease;

    Abstract : Prevention of first time disease or recurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major task for the health service. Guidelines regarding CHD prevention have been issued but studies have shown that treatment goals are inadequately met in clinical practice and there is urgent need for improved methods of implementation of guidelines.
