  1. 1. Cardiac function in hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis an echocardiographic study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Sandra Arvidsson; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Amyloid; echocardiography; ECG; HCM; fibril type; strain; ATTR; cardiomyopathy; speckle tracking;

    Abstract : Background: Hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR) is a lethal disease in which misfolded transthyretin (TTR) proteins accumulate as insoluble aggregates in tissues throughout the body. A common mutation is the exchange of valine to methionine at place 30 (TTR V30M), a form endemically found in the northern parts of Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. New insights in the assessment of right ventricular function an echocardiographic study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Avin Calcutteea; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; echocardiography; right ventricle; ischaemic heart disease; pulmonary hypertension; aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; three dimensional echocardiography; speckle tracking echocardiography; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background:  The right ventricle (RV) is multi-compartmental in orientation with a complex structural geometry. However, assessment of this part of the heart has remained an elusive clinical challenge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Echocardiographic measurements at Takotsubo cardiomyopathy transient left ventricular dysfunction

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Micael Waldenborg; Örebro universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; takotsubo; annulus motion; cardiac autonomic function; broken heart; diastolic; ventricular mass; concentric wall motion; Medicine; Medicin; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a disease characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and typical wall motion abnormalities in apical parts, without obvious signs of coronary influence. Due to its elusive natural cause and the lack of clarified pathology, further studies are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Echocardiographic measurements of the heart with focus on the right ventricle

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Karin Loiske; Örebro universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; heart; right ventricle; right ventricular outflow tract 1; isovolumetric relaxation time; maximal early diastolic relaxation velocity; takotsubo cardiomyopathy; long-axis function; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Clinical physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Klinisk fysiologi; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Echocardiography is a well established technique when evaluating the size and function of the heart. One of the most common ways to measure the size of the right ventricle (RV) is to measure the RV outflow tract 1(RVOT1). Several ways to measure RVOT1 are described in the literature. READ MORE
