  1. 1. Gastrointestinal symptoms in chronic renal failure. Prevalence and pathophysiological mechanisms

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Hans Strid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic renal failure; end-stage renal disease; gastrointestinal symptoms; overuse; proton pump inhibitors; H2-receptor antagonists; quality of life; manometry; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth; gastric emptying; Helicobacter pylori;

    Abstract : Chronic renal failure (CRF) has a varying etiology and is characterised by an increasing accumulation of toxic metabolic waste products in the blood. Malnutrition is a common finding in uraemic patients and is regarded as a marker for morbidity and mortality. Many factors, including gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, lead to malnutrition in CRF.

  2. 2. Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation and Oxidative Stress in Chronic Renal Failure

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Margus Annuk; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; endothelium; oxidative stress; chronic renal failure; L-arginine; diclofenac; erythropoietin; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Endothelial function and oxidative stress (OS) have previously been shown to be important in the pathogenesis of CVD. In this thesis, the endothelium-dependent vasodilatation (EDV) and OS were investigated in the patients with CRF. READ MORE

  3. 3. Malnutrition in patients with chronic renal failure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic renal failure; malnutrition; serum albumin; hand-grip strength; amino acids; inflammation;

    Abstract : Protein-energy malnutrition is common in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) and may contribute to a poor clinical outcome. However, the role of nutrition in this regard has not been clearly defined. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sympathetic function in cardiac disorders.Upon cardio-renal sympathetic activity and effects of nitroglycerin in human heart failure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Magnus Petersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; heart failure; renovascular hypertension; sympathetic nervous system; noradrenaline; mortality; renal circulation; cardiovascular physiology; baroreflex; nitroglycerin;

    Abstract : This study explores pathophysiological mechanisms and prognostic implications of sympathetic activation in patients with atherosclerotic renovascular hypertension (RVH) and with chronic heart failure (CHF). Hitherto, it is unknown whether cardiac sympathetic activation is present in patients with RVH, the presence of which could relate to the increased cardiovascular mortality observed in this disorder.
