  1. 1. Infarct size and myocardial function : A methodological study

    Author : Lene Rosendahl; Jan Engvall; Thor Edvardsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The size of a myocardial infarction (MI) and the concurrent effect on left ventricular (LV) function are essential for decisions regarding patient care and treatment. Images produced with the late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) technique visualize the scar with high spatial resolution. READ MORE

  2. 2. Expression of TGF- isoforms, their receptors and related SMAD proteins in brain pathology : Immunohistochemical studies focusing on infarcts, abscesses and malignant gliomas

    Author : Ahmad Khaled Ata; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; TGF-beta receptor; SMAD; brain; infarct; abscess; glioma; experimental; human; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Genetics; genetik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the immunohistochemical expression of transforming growth factor beta(TGFβ) isoforms, their receptors and TGF-β-related SMAD proteins in brain pathology, chiefly in-farcts. One key question was whether the expressions of these compounds are altered within glial cells, endothelial cells of microvessels and other cell types in the vicinity of infarcts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion MRI of Small Ischemic Brain Lesions: Technical aspects, clinical experiences and diagnostic criteria

    Author : Bo Geijer; Lund Diagnostisk radiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiology; Clinical physics; Metastasis; ADC; b; Infarct; MRI; Ischemia; Diffusion-Weighted; Diffusion; tomography; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Abstract : Purpose: To compare the visualization of small ischemic brain lesions using diffusion using diffusion-weighted (DW) MRI and conventional imaging, with special regard to diagnostic efficiency. Imaging features of lesions of different ages, diagnostic limitations and technical principles were also investigated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Astrocyte metabolism following focal cerebral ischemia

    Author : Anna E Thoren; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Astrocyte; metabolism; focal cerebral ischemia; reperfusion; infarct; [1-14C]acetate; [U-14C]glucose; glutamine; glutamate; ATP; ADP; lactate; MCT4; immunogold cytochemistry;

    Abstract : Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and death. Most often, stroke results from blockage of an artery in the brain leading to tissue infarction within the perfusion territory of the affected vessel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Acute Myocardial Infarction: The Relationship between Duration of Ischaemia and Infarct Size in Humans - Assessment by MRI and SPECT

    Author : Erik Hedström; Lund Klinisk fysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; Fysiologi; Physiology; humans; cardiac troponin T; creatine kinase isoenzyme MB; delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging; single photon emission computed tomography; myocardial perfusion; myocardial infarct size; myocardium at risk; duration of ischaemia; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : The effect of duration of ischaemia on final infarct size is well established in animal studies, but not fully evaluated in humans. Delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI) can be used to distinguish between viable and non-viable myocardium and thus to quantify infarct size. READ MORE
