  1. 1. Left ventricular thrombus and stroke after acute myocardial infarction

    Author : Thomas Mooe; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; myocardial infarction; thrombolytic therapy; left ventricular thrombosis; risk factors; cerebral embolism and thrombosis;

    Abstract : A left ventricular thrombus develops in approximately 40% of patients following an anterior myocardial infarction. Embolization from these thrombi has been regarded as the most important cause of stroke following a myocardial infarction. READ MORE

  2. 2. Platelet reactivity and comorbidities in acute coronary syndrome

    Author : Fredrik Björklund; Thomas Mooe; David Erlinge; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; platelet reactivity; platelet aggregation; Inflammation; infection; diabetes mellitus; chronic kidney disease; acute kidney injury; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background In the event of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the risk of death and complications such as stroke and re-infarction is high during the first month. Diabetes, impaired kidney function, elevated markers of systemic inflammation and high level of platelet reactivity have all been associated with worsened prognosis in ACS patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bleeding complications after acute coronary syndrome with special reference to intracranial hemorrhage

    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Acute myocardial infarction; serious bleeding; intracranial hemorrhage hemorrhagic stroke; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Background: Bleeding complications following acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have attracted considerable attention in recent years. The gradual implementation of new evidence-based treatments in patients with ACS, with a focus on anti-ischemic therapy, has reduced the risk of ischemic events (new myocardial infarction or ischemic stroke) but at the expense of increased bleeding risk.

  4. 4. Secondary prevention after acute coronary syndrome : antiplatelet therapy and risk factor control

    Author : Robin Henriksson; Thomas Mooe; Fredrik Björklund; Stefan James; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: One of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide is cardiovascular disease (CVD), including acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Despite improvements in medical treatment, management, and care over the years and the halving of mortality in recent decades, there is considerable room for improvement. READ MORE

  5. 5. On secondary prevention after acute coronary syndrome : -what, when, and who
