  1. 1. Periodontitis and coronary artery disease Studies on the association between periodontitis and coronary artery disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Carin Starkhammar Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Periodontitis and coronary artery disease (CAD) are highly prevalent in Sweden’s population; both diseases have complicated pathogeneses and clinical manifestations due to immune-system triggered inflammation. Research in recent years reported that inflammation is a significant active participant in many chronic diseases. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jan-Erik Karlsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1994]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Non-invasive indicators of severity of coronary lesions and the effects of thrombolysis were evaluated in 205 men, 38 to 70 years of age with unstable coronary aticty disease (CAD)- i.e. unstable angina or non-Q wave myocardial infarction - admitted to the coronary care units in nine hospitals.

  3. 3. Atrial Fibrillation in the setting of Coronary Artery Disease Risks and outcomes with different treatment options

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gorav Batra; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; coronary artery disease; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; percutaneous coronary intervention; coronary artery bypass grafting; antithrombotic therapy; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; angiotensin II receptor blockers; epidemiology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a prevalent arrhythmia associated with increased risk of mortality and morbidity. Despite improved outcome in both diseases, there is a need to further describe the prevalence, outcome and management of CAD in patients with concomitant AF. READ MORE

  5. 5. Leukocytes and Coronary Artery Disease Experimental and Clinical Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Lindmark; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Tissue factor; monocytes; platelets; cytokines; endothelial cells; unstable coronary artery disease; coagulation; inflammation; biochemical markers; IL-6; risk stratification; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Tissue factor (TF) is the initiator of the coagulation cascade. Monocytes do not normally express TF, but can be induced to do so by certain stimuli. Aberrant TF expression is important in the thrombotic complications of bacterial sepsis, certain malignancies and coronary artery disease (CAD). READ MORE
