  1. 1. Assessment of Left Ventricular Dysfunction and Remodelling by Determination of Atrioventricular Plane Displacement and Simplified Echocardiography

    University dissertation from Ronnie Willenheimer, Department of Cardiologi, Malmö University Hospital, S-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Ronnie Willenheimer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; simplified echocardiography; atrioventricular plane displacement; diagnosis; screening; heart failure; prognostication; latent heart failure; left ventricular dysfunction; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Heart failure is a common disease characterised by poor prognosis and frequent hospitalisations, constituting a major economic burden to society. Mortality and morbidity can be reduced by optimal treatment, requiring objective evaluation of cardiac function and anatomy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prognostic factors and tumor treatments in hepatocellular cancer

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hepatocellular cancer; prognostication;

    Abstract : Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common causes of cancer-related death worldwide. Prognosis is related to tumor burden, liver function, and performance status as well as treatment factors. Accurate prognostication is a requisite for optimal treatment decisions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autonomi, beroende, livskvalitet Livets sista månad för 56 cancerpatienter

    Abstract : The main purpose of the present study was to obtain an in-depth understanding of what the final phase of life was like for a group of gravely ill and dying cancer patients, with focus on autonomy, dependency and quality of life. The specific aims were to: 1) describe the patients' autonomy and how the attitudes of relatives and staff promoted/hindered patient participation in decision-making, 2) describe how the patients assessed their quality of life in two care cultures, 3) describe how members of the care team prognosticated the patients' remaining survival time, and 4) investigate continuity of care site in two different care cultures during the patients' final month of life.

  4. 4. Cardiac arrest – prognostic biomarkers and aspects of shock

    University dissertation from Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care

    Abstract : Background: Some improvement has been seen in survival after cardiac arrest but the outcome is still poor and 50-70% of patients do not survive despite successful return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). The cause of death is multifactorial. The majority of patients die from brain injury, but up to 35% die as a result of circulatory failure. READ MORE
