  1. 1. Inflammation and lifestyle in cardiovascular medicine

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Kurt Boman; Jan-Håkan Jansson; Lars Johansson; Joep Perk; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C-reactive protein; cardiovascular disease; stroke; atrial fibrillation; lifestyle; interleukin-6; tumor necrosis factor-α; exercise; physical activity; obesity; the metabolic syndrome; fibrinolysis; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Despite major advances in the treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis the last several decades, cardiovascular disease still accounts for the majority of deaths in Sweden. With the population getting older, more obese and with rising numbers of diabetics, the cardiovascular disease burden may increase further in the future. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ventricular rotation and the rotation axis a new concept in cardiac function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Ulf Gustafsson; Anders Waldenström; Per Lindqvist; Alan Fraser; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left ventricular function; right ventricular function; rotation; twist; rotation axis; transition plane; ischemia; speckle tracking echocardiography; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: The twisting motion of the left ventricle (LV), with clockwise rotation at the base and counter clockwise rotation at the apex during systole, is a vital part of LV function. Even though LV rotation has been studied for decades, the rotation pattern has not been described in detail. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet Inhibition in Coronary Artery Disease – Mechanisms and Clinical Importance Studies with Focus on P2Y12 Inhibition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christoph Varenhorst; Stefan James; Agneta Siegbahn; Lars Wallentin; Steen Dalby Kristensen; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary artery disease; myocardial infarction; acute coronary syndromes; stent thrombosis; P2Y12 inhibitors; thienopyridines; clopidogrel poor response; clopidogrel; prasugrel; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Despite the currently recommended dual antiplatelet treatment (DAT) with aspirin and P2Y12 inhibition in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) there is a risk of adverse clinical outcome. Pharmacodynamic (PD) poor response to clopidogrel occurs in ~ 30% of clopidogrel-treated patients and is associated with an increased risk of recurrent thrombotic events. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physical Activity and Cardiovascular Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kasper Andersen; Johan Sundström; Claes Held; Frieder Braunschweig; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical activity; epidemiology; cohort study; heart failure; cardiovascular disease; arrhythmias; atrial fibrillation; bradyarrhythmias; sudden cardiac death; heart failure; stroke; ischemic heart disease; cardiovascular death; maximal exercise capacity; muscle strength; skeletal muscle morphology; Kardiologi; Cardiology; Epidemiology; Epidemiologi;

    Abstract : The aim was to investigate associations of fitness and types and levels of physical activity with subsequent risk of cardiovascular disease.Four large-scale longitudinal cohort studies were used. The exposures were different measures related to physical activity and the outcomes were obtained through linkage to the Swedish In-Patient Register. READ MORE

  5. 5. Surgical ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation in different patient populations A study of clinical outcomes including rhythm, quality of life, atrial function and safety

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Louise Bagge; Carina Blomström-Lundqvist; Mårten Rosenqvist; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; surgical ablation; quality of life; vagal denervation; ganglionated plexi; left atrial function; epicardial; minimally invasive; left atrial ablation; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) have markedly reduced quality of life (QoL) and catheter ablation has become a useful tool in the rhythm control therapy. However, because of the poor outcome for patients with persistent AF, new surgical ablation strategies for rhythm control are emerging. READ MORE
