  1. 1. Immune mechanisms behind plaque vulnerability: experimental and clinical studies

    Author : Olga Ovchinnikova; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Physical disruption of atherosclerotic plaques causes many acute thrombotic complications such as myocardial infarction and stroke. The resistance of the atherosclerotic plaque to disruption depends in part on the integrity of its fibrous cap, which prevents contact between the highly thrombogenic lipid core and the circulating blood.

  2. 2. Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Aspects on a Novel Technique

    Author : Martin Malina; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; migration.; endoleak; stent; stentgraft; endovascular repair; Aneurysm; therapy; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : A new concept of treating abdominal aortic aneurysms was studied during a three-year period. Instead of open repair, graft insertion was accomplished endovascularly from the groins. The graft was attached by expandable stents to the non-dilated infrarenal aorta, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Follow-up of adults with congenitally malformed hearts with focus on individualised and computer-based education and psychosocial support : A descriptive and interventional study

    Author : Helén Rönning; Eva Swahn; Anna Strömberg; Niels Erik Nielsen; Peter Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Congenital heart disease; education; information; instrument development; multidisciplinary team; nursing; phenomenography; psychometrics; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Many adults with congenitally malformed hearts are at risk for complications such as decreased function and capacity of the heart due to the heart defect and previously surgery. This advocates self-management behaviours related to medical treatments, physical activity, preventions of endocarditis, some restrictions regarding suitable employment and spare time activities, birth control and pregnancy, but also lifestyle concerns such as refraining from smoking and healthy eating.

  4. 4. Ready to pull : force transmission during vascular development

    Author : Yuanyuan Zhang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The transmission of mechanical forces controls a multitude of cellular processes such as migration, the formation of new organs, muscle contraction, and resistance to the continuous stress that blood flow exerts on the blood vessel wall. These forces are sensed and replayed at the sites of cellular adhesion to the basal membrane as well as cell-cell junctions, where protein complexes connect to the cellular cytoskeleton to relay force into the cell.
