  1. 1. Long QT syndrome studies of diagnostic methods

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ulla-Britt Diamant; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: The Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) is a hereditary heart disease with risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. Despite our increased knowledge about genotype and phenotype correlation we still rely on the 12-lead ECG for assessment of the QT interval and the T-wave morphology for diagnosis and risk stratification.

  2. 2. Metabolic risk markers and relative survival in patients with aortic stenosis requiring surgery

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Holmgren; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aortic stenosis; aortic valve surgery; coronary artery disease; prospective cohort study; risk markers; lipoprotein a ; apolipoproteins; proteomics; troponin T; C-reactive protein; relative survival; observed survival; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common valve disorder requiring surgery in developed countries. The etiology of AS is only partly known.  Identification of new biomarkers in prospective studies could lead to novel insights in the etiology of AS, and possibly lead to improved clinical management.

  4. 4. Atrial fibrillation treatment, associated conditions and quantification of symptoms

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Niklas Höglund; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; cardioversion; atorvastatin; high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; symptoms; sleep apnea; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia. There is a need for new pharmacological treatment strategies since the current antiarrhythmic drugs have a modest efficacy and may have severe side effects. Cardioversion (CV) of AF offers an opportunity to study related conditions in sinus rhythm (SR) and during AF. READ MORE

  5. 5. Patterns of non-invasive imaging of carotid atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Pranvera Ibrahimi; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease that can be generalized, affecting more than one arterial bed simultaneously, or localized, manifested in one system. Ultrasound based measurements of plaque textural features, such as low grey scale median (GSM), echolucent (hypoechoic) plaque types and juxtaluminal black (hypoechoic) area (JBA) are manifestation of potentially unstable lesions.
