  1. 1. Management of hemorrhagic complications associated with antithrombotic therapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Ammar Majeed; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Anticoagulants are used for the prevention and treatment of arterial and venous thromboembolism. Such therapy is always associated with an increased risk of bleeding. Intracranial hemorrhage is the most serious form of anticoagulantsrelated bleeding and caries a high mortality rate. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atrial Fibrillation in the setting of Coronary Artery Disease Risks and outcomes with different treatment options

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gorav Batra; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; coronary artery disease; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; percutaneous coronary intervention; coronary artery bypass grafting; antithrombotic therapy; angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; angiotensin II receptor blockers; epidemiology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a prevalent arrhythmia associated with increased risk of mortality and morbidity. Despite improved outcome in both diseases, there is a need to further describe the prevalence, outcome and management of CAD in patients with concomitant AF. READ MORE

  3. 3. Invasive treatment of coronary artery disease Aspects on antithrombotic and percutaneous treatment options

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Per Grimfjärd; Stefan James; Christoph Varenhorst; P Hedberg; Lene Holmvang; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PCI; STEMI; stent thrombosis; bivalirudin; heparin; bioresorbable scaffold; cangrelor; drug eluting stent; DES; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : The outcome after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has improved considerably thanks to more effective antithrombotic treatment strategies and improved coronary stents. Stent thrombosis (ST) is a rare complication to PCI associated with considerable mortality and morbidity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of platelet function, and effects of aspirin and clopidogrel treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Christina Perneby; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel is a cornerstone in cardiovascular prevention and lowers cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in patient with coronary artery disease (CAD). Mental stress and physical exertion can trigger acute coronary events and prothrombotic responses to stress may contribute to such triggering. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammation and Coagulation Activity in Unstable Coronary Artery Disease and the Influences of Thrombin Inhibition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Oldgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Unstable coronary artery disease; inflammation; coagulation; thrombin inhibition; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : In patients with unstable coronary artery disease, this study evaluated the degree of inflammation and coagulation activity, relations to myocardial cell damage, prognosis, and influences of randomisation to 72 h infusion with three different doses of inogatran, a direct thrombin inhibitor (n=904), or unfractionated heparin (n=305). Anticoagulant treatment effects were evaluated with aPT time. READ MORE
