  1. 1. VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM IN SOUTHERN SWEDEN EPIDEMIOLOGY AND RISK FACTORS

    Author : Nazim Isma; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; Venous thromboembolism VTE ; risk factors; factor V leiden FVL ; socioeconomic status SES ; upper extremety deep venous thrombosis UEDVT ; haemoglobin Hb ; low molecular weight heparin LMWH ; labour;

    Abstract : Despite the fact that venous thromboembolism (VTE) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality there is still insufficient information on VTE risk factors and patient characteristics in the general population. Previously published incidences of VTE (deep venous thrombosis [DVT] and pulmonary embolism [PE]) vary from 71 to 192 per 100,000 individuals per year. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aspects on preoperative evaluation prior to EVAR of AAA

    Author : Tomas Ohrlander; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal aortic aneurysm; endovascular aortic repair; EVAR; preoperative evaluation; spirometry; echocardiography; vascular physician; angiologist;

    Abstract : Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms, AAA, is mainly a silent disease that mainly affects elderly males with a history of tobacco use, but when rupture occur most affected dies. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) has made it possible to treat more fragile and elderly patients with advanced co-morbidities. READ MORE

    Abstract : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aspects on intra-arterial thrombolysis for lower limb ischemia

    Author : Monica Kuoppala; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intra-arterial thrombolysis. Lower limb ischemia. Outcome. Amputation-free survival. Hemorrhage. Risk factors.;

    Abstract : Background: Acute ischemia of the lower limb is a vascular emergency associated with amputation and death. Patients suffering from acute limb ischemia are usually elderly, and multiple comorbidities are often present. Intra-arterial thrombolysis is, perhaps, the most important minimal-invasive treatment option available today. READ MORE

  5. 5. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm – Different Aspects on Screening

    Author : Moncef Zarrouk; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []

    Abstract : Abstract Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a hideous life threatening disease that most often is asymptomatic until it ruptures. Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is a painful and serious predicament with a mortality of 80-90%. Half of the patients die before arriving to hospital, leaving family members in sorrow and shock. READ MORE
