  1. 1. Cardiac involvement in familial amyloidosis with polyneuropathy

    Author : Peter Eriksson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; amyloidosis; arrhythmias; cardiac pacing; cardiac radionuclide; imaging; echocardiography; electrocardiography; pathology;

    Abstract : Familial amyloidosis with polyneuropathy (FAP) is a neuropathic form of heredofamilial systemic amyloidosis. Clusters of patients have been reported predominantly from Portugal, Japan and Sweden. The present study examines the involvement of the heart in individuals with the Swedish variety of FAP.

  2. 2. The pace of innovation : Patterns of innovation in the cardiac pacemaker industry

    Author : Patrik Hidefjäll; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Cardiac Pacemaker; Competition; Competitive Advantage; Defibrillator; Dominant Design; Innovation; Organizational Field; Patterns of Innovation; Technical Change; Technology Cycle; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The PhD thesis "The Pace of Innovation" addresses the questions how patterns of innovation change over time in an industry, their consequences for competition and how institutional conditions in an industry shape determinants of patterns of innovation. Patterns of innovation mainly refer to how certain regularities in the diversity, types and locus of innovation change in an industry according to a technology and industry life cycle. READ MORE

    Abstract : Background: Congenital heart disease (CHD) includes a wide range of malformations, from simple lesions, e.g. ventricular septal defect, that resolve spontaneously, to severe lesions, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computer-based modeling and simulation in the analysis of cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac pacing

    Author : Hans Åhlfeldt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : arrhythmogenic mechanisms; modulated parasystole; phase response curve; pacemaker follow-up; modeling; simulation; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Most systems for ECG analysis deal with QRS classification and arrhythmia detection but do not address the problem of finding the underlying mechanism responsible for the manifest arrhythmia. Although it is possible to distinguish among different arrhythmogenic mechanisms on the cellular level, it is far more difficult in the clinic based on ECG recordings. READ MORE

  5. 5. Metabolic aspects of cardiac arrhythmias

    Author : Sigfus Gizurarson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiologi; Electrofysiologi; Djurexperiment; Metabolism;

    Abstract : Cardiac arrhythmias are an important cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with cardiac diseases. Sudden death due to ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation (VT/VF) in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and heart failure (HF) is a frequent cause of premature death. READ MORE
