  1. 1. Recurrent events and secondary prevention after acute cerebrovascular disease

    Author : Anna-Lotta Irewall; Thomas Mooe; Katarina Laurell; Lindgren Arne; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; transient ischemic attack; secondary prevention; socioeconomic position; prognosis; randomized controlled trial;

    Abstract : Background Patients who experience a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) are at high risk of recurrent stroke, but little is known about temporal trends in unselected populations. Reports of low adherence to recommended treatments indicate a need for enhanced secondary preventive follow-up to achieve the full potential of evidence-based treatments. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiovascular disease in dementia

    Author : Pavla Cermakova; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to characterize the burden of cardiovascular diseases in patients with dementia, their treatment and association with survival. Further, we aimed to explore whether cardiac structure in young adults can affect the aging brain. READ MORE

  3. 3. On certain genetic and metabolic risk factors for carotid stenosis and stroke

    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Carotid artery diseases; Carrier proteins; genetics; Cerebrovascular accident; Cerebrovascular disorders; Genetic predisposition to disease; Polymorphism; genetic; Medicine; Medicin; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : The present study evaluated genetic and metabolic factors influencing the risk of acute cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and internal carotid artery stenosis (ICA stenosis) in a Swedish community. The threonine (T) containing protein of the FABP2 A54T gene polymorphism has a greater affinity for long chain fatty acids (FFAs) than the alanine (A) containing protein. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stroke : patient characteristics, efficacy of a stroke unit and evaluation of hemodilution therapy

    Author : Tage Strand; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Acute cerebrovascular disease; blood viscosity; cerebral infarction; hemodilution therapy; stroke unit;

    Abstract : Stroke is a major health problem in all developed countries. These studies, performed in a stroke unit at a medical department, were designed to characterize essential clinical features of the different cerebrovascular disorders on admission to hospital, to evaluate the efficacy of admitting unselected stroke patients to a stroke unit and, to evaluate hemodilution as a therapeutical regime in patients with cerebral infarction.

  5. 5. Hemostatic disturbances in acute ischemic stroke

    Author : Elisabeth Rooth; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ischemic stroke;

    Abstract : Background: Stroke is the 2nd most common cause of death after ischemic heart disease. About 85% of all strokes are caused by a thrombus or an embolus in the cerebral circulation. Stroke causes major handicap with impaired quality of life for the patients and their families and a large costs to society. READ MORE
