  1. 1. Carotid artery disease plaque features and vulnerability

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Fisnik Jashari; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid atherosclerosis; ultrasound; plaque features; echogenicity; calcification; surface plaque irregularities; subclinical atherosclerosis; cerebrovascular symptoms; Cardiology; kardiologi; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : Background: Atherosclerosis is an important cause of stroke. Ultrasound offers the convenience of real-time and detailed assessment of carotid plaque features as well as arterial wall thickening and composition. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carotid Artery Stenosis Surgical Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Kragsterman; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Surgery; carotid endarterectomy; carotid artery stenosis; carotid clamping; cerebral ischaemia; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Randomised controlled trials (RCT) have demonstrated a net benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in stroke prevention for patients with severe carotid artery stenosis as compared to best medical treatment. Results in routine clinical practice must not be inferior to those in the RCTs. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of duplex scanning in the management of carotid artery disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karl Logason; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Duplex scanning; Doppler spectral analysis; duplex criteria; Doppler angle of insonation; carotid artery stenosis; carotid endarterectomy; spontaneous cervical artery dissection; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Extracranial carotid artery disease, mainly due to atherosclerosis, is a common cause of stroke. The risk for future stroke can be reduced in selected patients by carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Duplex scanning has been increasingly used for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Screening for asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Dominika Högberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid stenosis; carotid atherosclerosis; screening; cost-effectiveness; natural history; carotid ultrasound; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Ischemic stroke is the most common cause of handicap in adults and the third most common cause of death in Sweden. Internal carotid artery atherosclerosis is an important cause and accounts for 20% of ischemic strokes. Screening for carotid atherosclerosis has been debated over the past two decades. READ MORE

  5. 5. Artery Wall Imaging and Effects of Postmenopausal Estrogen Therapy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kenny A. Rodriguez-Macias Wallberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; artery wall thickness; tunica media; tunica intima; arterial stiffness; carotid; aorta; cardiovascular disease; atherosclerosis; menopause; estrogen; hormone therapy; ultrasound; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Postmenopausal estrogen therapy, initiated early in the menopause, seems to protect against development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. This thesis concerns studies of artery wall thickness and arterial stiffness estimated by noninvasive ultrasound techniques in long-term estrogen treated postmenopausal women who initiated therapy at the time of the menopause.
