    Abstract : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the manifestation of atherosclerotic lesions in arteries supplying blood to the legs. Atherosclerosis is now recognized as an inflammatory disease of the vessel wall and important features in the pathophysiology are activation of WBC, endothelial cells and increased levels of inflammatory mediators.

  2. 2. Diabetes and peripheral arterial disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Jonas Malmstedt; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Diabetes mellitus increases the risk for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) early in life and the disease is likely to progress to advanced stages. Mechanisms responsible for premature PAD in diabetes are partly unknown. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epidemiological aspects of peripheral arterial disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peripheral arterial disease; prevalence; risk factors; sex differences; diagnosis; intermittent claudication; preventive medication; cost effectiveness;

    Abstract : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is defined as atherosclerosis in the arteries distal to the aortic bifurcation, with or without symptoms in the legs. It is diagnosed by ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) measurements and symptoms, and a confirmed diagnosis is associated with an increased cardiovascular (CV) mortality reaching the same levels as in patients with symptomatic coronary disease.

  4. 4. Importance of peripheral arterial disease as a risk marker in patients with myocardial infarction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to describe the true prevalence of widespread arterial disease in a cohort with patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI) to find valuable clinical methods to detect these patients. Our aim was also to investigate biomarker relationships with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and the importance of PAD in patients’ long-term outcomes. READ MORE

  5. 5. LIVING WITH PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE Quality of life and the patients' view of meaning

    University dissertation from Grahns Tryckeri AB, Lund

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate quality of life and the meaning of living with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) before and after revascularization in a long-term and methodological perspective. The sample in the first study consisted of 142 patients with PAD who were planned for a revascularization. READ MORE
