  1. 1. Coarctation of the aorta register and imaging studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Daniel Rinnström; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coarctation of the aorta; adult congenital heart disease; hypertension; left ventricular hypertrophy; body mass index; height; weight; register; CMR;

    Abstract : Background Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) constitutes 5-8 % of all congenital heart disease (CHD) and is associated with long-term complications such as hypertension (HTN) and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Factors associated with HTN, LVH, and diffuse myocardial fibrosis, are not yet fully explored in this population. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical Aspects on Chimney Stent Graft Technique in Endovascular Repair of the Aorta

    University dissertation from Vascular Diseases, Lund University

    Author : Adel BinJabr; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chimney stent graft; chimney graft; chimney graft technique; snorkel technique; endovascular aortic repair; thoracic endovascular aortic repair; endoleak; patency; rupture; urgent; stent-graft; stent; graft; aorta; computed tomography; ultrasound; stenosis; EVAR; TEVAR; CTA; MRI; AAA; TAAA; supraaortic; visceral; aneurysm; dissection; mycotic infection; stent-graft infection; follow-up; endovascular complication; sandwich technique; periscope graft; periscope graft technique.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expression and function of vascular estrogen receptors alpha and beta

    University dissertation from Min Liang, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Min Liang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetologi; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; MIP-2; MCP-1; iNOS; estrogen receptor knockout; estrogen receptor; aorta; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogen receptors (ER) are expressed not only in classical target organs for estrogen like breast and uterus, but also in male reproductive system as well as in non-reproductive organs such as brain, liver and bone. The functions of ER are quite well known in reproductive organs but less information is available regarding their function in vascular tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ultrasound evaluation of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular sources of cerebral embolism

    University dissertation from Min Liang, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Robert Wetterholm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; atherosclerosis; aorta; echocardiography; ultrasound; IMT; MES; WHHL;

    Abstract : The search for embolic sources has high priority in patients presenting with suspected cerebral embolism. Non-invasive cardiovascular ultrasound is frequently used to reveal the presence of carotid stenosis and cardiac disorders with embolic potential. READ MORE

  5. 5. Abdominal aortic aneurysm inception and evolution - A computational model

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Andrii Grytsan; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aorta; Aneurysm; AAA; Blood Flow; Wall Shear Stress; Growth and Remodeling; Mixture Model; Growth Kinematics; Fluid-Solid-Growth; Aorta; Aneurysm; AAA; Blodflöde; Vägg Skjuvspänning; Tillväxt och Strukturförändring; Blandning Modell; Tillväxt Kinematik; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is characterized by a bulge in the abdominal aorta. AAA development is mostly asymptomatic, but such a bulge may suddenly rupture, which is associated with a high mortality rate. Unfortunately, there is no medication that can prevent AAA from expanding or rupturing. READ MORE
