    Abstract : Carotid stenosis is one of several causes of ischemic stroke and entails a high risk of ischemic stroke recurrence. Removal of a carotid stenosis by carotid endarterectomy results in a risk reduction for ischemic stroke, but the magnitude of risk reduction depends on several factors. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Mörkerseendet är en mycket känslig nervfunktion och mycket känsligare för låg syrgastillförsel än högre mentala funktioner. Mörkerseendet är kraftigt reducerat hos patienter med två kliniskt sett så olika tillstånd som förträngd halspulsåder (carotisstenos) och "trögflytande blod" (polycytämi). READ MORE
