  1. 1. Diabetes and Coronary Surgery : Metabolic and clinical studies on diabetic patients after coronary surgery with special reference to cardiac metabolism and high-dose GIK

    Author : Zoltán Szabó; Folke Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; heart; coronary surgery; cardiac surgery; myocardial metabolism; free fatty; Thoracic surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : Introduction An increasing proportion of the patients undergoing cardiac surgery have diabetes mellitus, in particular type II diabetes. In spite of this, diabetic patients have received limited attention in this setting. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atrial fibrillation in cardiac surgery

    Author : Anders Ahlsson; Anders Englund; Johan Brandt; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; Inflammation; CABG surgery; Survival analysis; Follow-up studies; Ablation; Microwave; Transmurality; Atrial function; Tissue velocity echocardiography; Thoracic surgery; Thoraxkirurgi; Kirurgi; särskilt thoraxkirurgi; Surgery esp. Thoracic and Cardivascular Surgery;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia seen in clinical practice. In cardiac surgery, one-third of the patients experience episodes of AF during the first postoperative days (postoperative AF), and patients with preoperative AF (concomitant AF) can be offered ablation procedures in conjunction with surgery, in order to restore ordinary sinus rhythm (SR).

  3. 3. Thoracic Aortic Surgery : Epidemiology, Outcomes, and Prevention of Cerebral Complications

    Author : Christian Olsson; Stefan Thelin; Jan van der Linden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Surgery; Aorta; Thoracic; Aortic aneurysms; Aortic disease; Cardiovascular surgical procedures; Epidemiology; Registries; Treatment outcome; Survival analysis; Cerebral infarction; Near-infrared spectroscopy; Quality of life; Perfusion; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The mortality of thoracic aortic diseases (mainly aneurysms and dissections) is high, even with surgical treatment. Epidemiology and long-term outcomes are incompletely investigated. Stroke is a major complication contributing to mortality, morbidity, and possibly to reduced quality of life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lung function after cardiac surgery : With special reference to atelectasis and ventilation-perfusion relationships

    Author : Arne Tenling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Cardiac surgery; thoracic epidural analgesia; vital capacity manoeuvre; computed tomography; ventilation-perfusion relationships; gas exchange; atelectasis; respiratory inductive plethysmography; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : Patients undergoing cardiac surgery were investigated before and after the operation.Ventilation-perfusion (VA/Q) relationships were examined by the multiple inert gas elimination method, and atelectasis and aeration of the lungs were examined by computedtomography (CT). READ MORE

  5. 5. Physiotherapy interventions and outcomes following lung cancer surgery

    Author : Barbara C Brocki; Elisabeth Westerdahl; Jan Jesper Andreasen; Domingos Savio R. Souza; Rik Gosselink; Örebro universitet; []
