  1. 11. Cost-effectiveness and Value of Further Research of Treatment Strategies for Cardiovascular Disease

    Author : Martin Henriksson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Economic evaluation; decision-analytic modelling; prioritising research; carotid endarterectomy; abdominal aortic aneurysm; screening; non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome; early intervention; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Health and medical services in society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Hälso- och sjukvård i samhället;

    Abstract : Economic evaluations provide a tool to estimate costs and health consequences of competing medical technologies, ultimately to aid decision makers when deciding which medical technologies should be funded from available resources. Such decisions inevitably need to be taken under uncertainty and it is not clear how to approach them in health care decision-making. READ MORE

  2. 12. Cerebral blood flow distribution, collateral function and pulsatility in healthy and in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis  a magnetic resonance imaging approach

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Laleh Zarrinkoob; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aging; Arterial pulsatility; Carotid stenosis; Cerebral arteries; Cerebral blood flow; Cerebral collateral blood flow; Circle of Willis; Phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging;

    Abstract : Background: For the detection and treatment of early cerebral vascular disease it is of paramount importance to first understand the normal physiology of the cerebral vasculature, and subsequently, to understand how and when pathology can develop from that. This is especially important as the population above 65 years of age is increasing and aging itself is an established risk factor for the development of cerebral vascular disease. READ MORE

  3. 13. Inflammation, Plaque Vulnerability and Cardiovascular Risk

    University dissertation from Exp Cardiovascular Research Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Author : Helena Grufman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; carotid plaque; acute coronary syndrome; CRP; cytokines; aging; IL-27;

    Abstract : Acute cardiovascular events, most commonly caused by rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque, lie behind one third of all deaths worldwide. Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease of large and medium sized arteries driven by retention of lipid in the arterial wall. READ MORE

  4. 14. Timely treatment in stroke and TIA

    University dissertation from Exp Cardiovascular Research Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Author : Annika Nordanstig; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; transient ischemic attack; campaign; carotid artery stenosis;

    Abstract : In acute stroke, the effect of both acute treatments and secondary prevention is timedependent. Patients´ delay is an important obstacle to acute recanalization therapy for stroke. To decrease this delay, a stroke educational campaign was carried out in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 15. Cell death in atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Milita Crisby; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; carotid artery stenosis; ischemic stroke; apoptosis; necrosis; lipid peroxidation; plaque stability; pravastatin; inflammation; 27-[alpha]-hydroxylase;

    Abstract : Rupture of atherosclerotic lesions is recognized as the major cause of acute cerebrovascular and coronary syndromes. The characteristics of the typical vulnerable plaque include increased inflammatory cells at the shoulder region, a large lipid core, a thin fibrous cap with few collagen fibers and smooth muscle cells.
