  1. 6. Serum lipoprotein(a) in relation to ischemic heart disease and associated risk factors

    Author : Lisbeth Slunga; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Lipoprotein a ; lipids; epidemiology; coronary artery disease; coronary angiography; HLA DR; acute-phase protein; myocardial infarction; HMG CoA reductase inhibitor; simvastatin;

    Abstract : Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) consists of an LDL-like particle and the specific protein apo(a), which is very similar to plasminogen. Apo(a) contains repeated kringle structures and a serine protease domain, which cannot be activated by t-PA. Lp(a) is considered to be a predictor for atherosclerotic disease. READ MORE

  2. 7. Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting : Risk factors and clinical outcome

    Author : Emma Thorén; Elisabeth Ståhle; Elmir Omerovic; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; coronary artery bypass grafting; coronary artery disease; epidemiology; morbidity; mortality; outcome;

    Abstract : Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a common complication after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and more knowledge is needed regarding prediction of POAF, the extent of early atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after discharge, and the associations between POAF and short and long-term overall and cause-specific mortality and morbidity.After CABG, 31-32% of all patients developed POAF.

  3. 8. Coronary heart disease incidence and short-term case fatality in relation to socio-economic circumstances - epidemiological and clinical aspects

    Author : Sofia Gerward; Kardiovaskulär forskning - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gender; cohort study; epidemiology; socio-economic factors; risk factors; mortality; myocardial infarction; ischemic heart disease; coronary heart disease;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study incidence and case-fatality rate (CFR) of myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemic heart disease (IHD), by exploring relations to socioeconomic position (SEP), other cardiovascular risk factors, medical seeking pattern and time trends. Data from the Malmö Myocardial Infarction Register (1986-1995; n=5533), the Malmö 1990 cohort (1990-2003; n=69 223), the Malmö Preventive Project (19742004; n=33 224) and out-of-hospital IHD deaths in southern Sweden (1992-2003; n=14 347) were used.

  4. 9. Studies of Secondary Prevention after Coronary Heart Disease with Special Reference to Determinants of Recurrent Event Rate

    Author : Mats Gulliksson; Kurt Svärdsudd; Gunilla Burell; Mai-Lis Hellénius; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coronary heart disease; myocardial infarction; epidemiology; population; prevention; recurrence; psychosocial factors; social support; gender; regional variation; co-morbidity; Family medicine; Allmänmedicin; allmänmedicin; Family Medicine;

    Abstract : Objectives. The first aim was to examine the effects of secondary prevention with a focus on determinants in the risk of recurrent coronary heart disease (CHD). READ MORE

  5. 10. Thoracic Aortic Surgery : Epidemiology, Outcomes, and Prevention of Cerebral Complications

    Author : Christian Olsson; Stefan Thelin; Jan van der Linden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Surgery; Aorta; Thoracic; Aortic aneurysms; Aortic disease; Cardiovascular surgical procedures; Epidemiology; Registries; Treatment outcome; Survival analysis; Cerebral infarction; Near-infrared spectroscopy; Quality of life; Perfusion; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The mortality of thoracic aortic diseases (mainly aneurysms and dissections) is high, even with surgical treatment. Epidemiology and long-term outcomes are incompletely investigated. Stroke is a major complication contributing to mortality, morbidity, and possibly to reduced quality of life. READ MORE
