  1. 1. Inflammation and lifestyle in cardiovascular medicine

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C-reactive protein; cardiovascular disease; stroke; atrial fibrillation; lifestyle; interleukin-6; tumor necrosis factor-α; exercise; physical activity; obesity; the metabolic syndrome; fibrinolysis; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Despite major advances in the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis the last several decades, cardiovascular disease still accounts for the majority of deaths in Sweden. With the population getting older, more obese and with rising numbers of diabetics, the cardiovascular disease burden may increase further in the future. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ventricular rotation and the rotation axis a new concept in cardiac function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Ulf Gustafsson; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left ventricular function; right ventricular function; rotation; twist; rotation axis; transition plane; ischemia; speckle tracking echocardiography; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: The twisting motion of the left ventricle (LV), with clockwise rotation at the base and counter clockwise rotation at the apex during systole, is a vital part of LV function. Even though LV rotation has been studied for decades, the rotation pattern has not been described in detail. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet Inhibition in Coronary Artery Disease – Mechanisms and Clinical Importance Studies with Focus on P2Y12 Inhibition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christoph Varenhorst; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary artery disease; myocardial infarction; acute coronary syndromes; stent thrombosis; P2Y12 inhibitors; thienopyridines; clopidogrel poor response; clopidogrel; prasugrel; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Despite the currently recommended dual antiplatelet treatment (DAT) with aspirin and P2Y12 inhibition in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) there is a risk of adverse clinical outcome. Pharmacodynamic (PD) poor response to clopidogrel occurs in ~ 30% of clopidogrel-treated patients and is associated with an increased risk of recurrent thrombotic events. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular aspects on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with focus on ischemic ECG abnormalities, QT prolongation and arterial stiffness

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Ulf Nilsson; Anne Lindberg; Anders Blomberg; Bengt Johansson; Christine Brulin; Per Bakke; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; COPD; ischemic heart disease; cardiovascular disease; ECG; spirometry; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : BackgroundChronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) is an under-diagnosed disease with a prevalence of approximately 10%, highly dependent on age and smoking habits. Comorbidities are common in COPD and of these, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heart rate variability and pacemaker treatment in children with Fontan circulation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jenny Alenius Dahlqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Congenital heart disease; Fontan circulation; heart rate variability; pacemaker; sinus node dysfunction; pediatrik; Pediatrics; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Fontan surgery is performed in children with univentricular heart defects. Arrhythmias are frequent complications, occasionally requiring pacemaker treatment. Previous data regarding indications and risk factors for pacemaker treatment in Fontan patients is limited and conflicting. READ MORE
