  1. 1. Stroke : patient characteristics, efficacy of a stroke unit and evaluation of hemodilution therapy

    Author : Tage Strand; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Acute cerebrovascular disease; blood viscosity; cerebral infarction; hemodilution therapy; stroke unit;

    Abstract : Stroke is a major health problem in all developed countries. These studies, performed in a stroke unit at a medical department, were designed to characterize essential clinical features of the different cerebrovascular disorders on admission to hospital, to evaluate the efficacy of admitting unselected stroke patients to a stroke unit and, to evaluate hemodilution as a therapeutical regime in patients with cerebral infarction.

  2. 2. Recurrent stroke : risk factors, predictors and prognosis

    Author : Johanna Pennlert; Marie Eriksson; Per-Gunnar Wiklund; Bo Carlberg; Hélène Pessah-Rasmussen; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Background Many risk factors for stroke are well characterized and might, at least to some extent, be similar for first-ever stroke and for recurrent stroke events. However, previous studies have shown heterogeneous results on predictors and rates of stroke recurrence. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stroke Epidemiology and Outcome in Southern Sweden

    Author : Joseph Aked; Klinisk strokeforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; Epidemiology; Stroke incidence; Stroke Outcome; Ischemic Stroke; intracerebral haemorrhage; Population-based cohort study; Functional outcome;

    Abstract : Background: Stroke is a common cause of mortality and disability worldwide and continuously updated, thorough information of itsoccurrence and outcome is needed. In recent years, multiple advances have been made in stroke prevention and treatment that mayhave changed the epidemiology and outcome of stroke. READ MORE

  4. 4. Risk factors in ischemic stroke

    Author : Katarina Jood; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : stroke; ischemic stroke subtypes; genetics; polymorphism; fibrinolysis; obesity; stress;

    Abstract : Ischemic stroke is a complex disease in which environmental and genetic factors make about equal contributions to the etiology. However, knowledge regarding the molecular basis of the genetic influence and the impact of specific lifestyle factors is limited. READ MORE

  5. 5. Population-based studies of atrial fibrillation and ischemic stroke

    Author : John Berntsson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; Ischemic stroke; Biomarker; Stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology; Atrial Fibrillation; Stroke; Ischemic stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : AbstractBackground: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and the most common cause of cardioembolic stroke. Early detection of AF and AF subjects at high risk for stroke is therefore important. READ MORE
