  1. 6. Artery Wall Imaging and Effects of Postmenopausal Estrogen Therapy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kenny A. Rodriguez-Macias Wallberg; Tord Naessén; Lars-Åke Mattsson; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; artery wall thickness; tunica media; tunica intima; arterial stiffness; carotid; aorta; cardiovascular disease; atherosclerosis; menopause; estrogen; hormone therapy; ultrasound; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Postmenopausal estrogen therapy, initiated early in the menopause, seems to protect against development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. This thesis concerns studies of artery wall thickness and arterial stiffness estimated by noninvasive ultrasound techniques in long-term estrogen treated postmenopausal women who initiated therapy at the time of the menopause.

  2. 7. The inflammatory response to arterial injury

    University dissertation from Exp. Kardiovask. Forsk., Wallenberg Lab. Ingång 46 Plan 1 UMAS 205 02 Malmö

    Author : Paul Dimayuga; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; neointima; arterial injury; inflammation; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis as a disease is postulated to stem from a response to injury of the arterial wall by various stimuli. The inflammatory response is proposed to mediate intimal formation after injury. One pathway of cellular response to injury is through transcription factor NF-kB. READ MORE

  3. 8. Regulation of aortic wall mechanics and stress An experimental study in man

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Author : Håkan Åstrand; Toste Länne; Matts Karlsson; Martin Björck; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aorta; wall stress; remodeling; IMT; gender; diabetes mellitus; aging; collagen; elastin; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Vascular surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Kärlkirurgi;

    Abstract : The abdominal aorta (AA) in man is a vulnerable artery prone to atherosclerosis as well as aneurysmatic dilation. The underlying aortic composition, mechanical properties as well as the mechanisms responsible for age-related changes and vascular disease are however largely unknown. READ MORE

  4. 9. Inflammatory Response in Peripheral Arterial Disease

    University dissertation from Medicinsk Informationsteknik, Malmö

    Author : Peter Danielsson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; muskelsystem; reumatologi; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; Skeleton; Polymorphism; Metabolism; Prostacyclin; Microdislysis; Diabetes mellitus; Revascularisation; Angioplasty; Endothelial cells; White blood cells; Inflammation; Peripheral Arterial Disease; muscle system;

    Abstract : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the manifestation of atherosclerotic lesions in arteries supplying blood to the legs. Atherosclerosis is now recognized as an inflammatory disease of the vessel wall and important features in the pathophysiology are activation of WBC, endothelial cells and increased levels of inflammatory mediators.

  5. 10. Energy metabolic failure within the arterial wall in atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Max Levin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; hypoxia; hypoxia marker; bioluminescence imaging; ATP; glucose; lactate; energy metabolism;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a disease that affects large and medium sized arteries. The majority of deaths in a Western population can be directly attributed to complications of this disease. Although research efforts have been vast, the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying atherosclerosis are not fully understood. READ MORE
