  1. 1. Permeability of the glomerular filtration barrier in relation to the size, shape, charge and deformability of the permeating molecules

    Author : Daniel Asgeirsson; Njurmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proteinuria; capillary physiology; peritoneal membrane; dialysis; microalbuminuria; cardiovascular; endothelial dysfunction; diagnosis;

    Abstract : Characterization of the glomerular filtration barrier is of fundamental importance for understanding the pathophysiology of proteinuric kidney diseases. Furthermore, it can be of key value in the understanding of microalbuminuria, which is often associated with endothelial dysfunction in conjunction with cardiovascular disease. READ MORE

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

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

    Abstract : Background: Chronic 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

  3. 3. Cardiac abnormalities in chronic kidney disease

    Author : Pavlos Kashioulis; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiovascular; chronic kidney disease; diastolic dysfunction;

    Abstract : Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global health problem associated with increased risk of mortality and development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality even before the development of ESRD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiovascular fluid dynamics : methods for flow and pressure field analysis from magnetic resonance imaging

    Author : Tino Ebbers; Håkan Arheden; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular blood flow is highly complex and incompletely understood. Blood flow patterns are expected to influence the opening and closing of normal and prosthetic heart valves, the efficiency of cardiac filling and ejection, and the resistance to thrombus formation within the heart.

  5. 5. Body weight, body size and early cardiovascular disease. Epidemiological studies using Swedish registries

    Author : Christina Lundberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; body mass index; obesity; bariatric surgery; gastric bypass; cardiovascular disease; mortality;

    Abstract : Background: Obesity is a known risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, as well as for atrial fibrillation and heart failure. While overweight and obesity have become increasingly more common in Sweden and worldwide during the past decades, there have also been an increase of some cardiovascular diseases (CVD) among men and women younger than 45 years old in Sweden.
