  1. 1. Acute coronary syndrome : bleeding, platelets and gender

    Author : Anna Holm; Eva Swahn; Joakim Alfredsson; Sofia Sederholm Lawesson; Christina Christersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : BACKGROUNDBleeding complications increase mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Potential gender difference in bleeding regarding prevalence, location, severity and prognostic impact is still controversial and not well investigated. In regard to this aspect the relevance of triple antithrombotic therapy (TAT) is questioned. READ MORE

  2. 2. Secondary prevention after acute coronary syndrome : antiplatelet therapy and risk factor control

    Author : Robin Henriksson; Thomas Mooe; Fredrik Björklund; Stefan James; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute coronary syndrome; secondary prevention; myocardial infarction; ischemic stroke; antiplatelet therapy; risk factors; randomized controlled trial; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: One of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide is cardiovascular disease (CVD), including acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Despite improvements in medical treatment, management, and care over the years and the halving of mortality in recent decades, there is considerable room for improvement. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet reactivity and comorbidities in acute coronary syndrome

    Author : Fredrik Björklund; Thomas Mooe; David Erlinge; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; platelet reactivity; platelet aggregation; Inflammation; infection; diabetes mellitus; chronic kidney disease; acute kidney injury; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background In the event of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the risk of death and complications such as stroke and re-infarction is high during the first month. Diabetes, impaired kidney function, elevated markers of systemic inflammation and high level of platelet reactivity have all been associated with worsened prognosis in ACS patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. On secondary prevention after acute coronary syndrome : -what, when, and who

  5. 5. Platelet Inhibition, Revascularization, and Risk Prediction in Non-ST-elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes

    Author : Daniel Lindholm; Stefan James; Christoph Varenhorst; James de Lemos; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and ischemic heart disease is the most common manifestation. Despite improved outcomes during the last decades, patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are still at substantial risk of recurrent ischemic events and mortality. READ MORE
