  1. 1. Population-based studies of atrial fibrillation and ischemic stroke

    Author : John Berntsson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; Ischemic stroke; Biomarker; Stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology; Atrial Fibrillation; Stroke; Ischemic stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : AbstractBackground: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and the most common cause of cardioembolic stroke. Early detection of AF and AF subjects at high risk for stroke is therefore important. READ MORE

  2. 2. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation

    Author : Ziad Hijazi; Jonas Oldgren; Lars Wallentin; Agneta Siegbahn; Ola Hammarsten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; stroke risk; cardiac biomarkers; troponin; natriuretic peptides; NT-proBNP; risk stratification; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) confers an independent increased risk of stroke and death. The stroke risk is very heterogeneous and current risk stratification models based on clinical variables, such as the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2VASc score, only offer a modest discriminating value. READ MORE

  3. 3. Population-based prediction of atrial fibrillation

    Author : Gustav Smith; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; prediction; epidemiology; genetics; natriuretic peptide; heart failure;

    Abstract : Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and increases in prevalence. As AF confers increased risk of morbidity, stroke, dementia and mortality, a major objective of cardiovascular epidemiology today is the development of tools for prediction and prevention of AF and its consequences.

  4. 4. The endocrine heart - metabolic actions of atrial natriuretic peptide

    Author : Amra Jujic; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial natriuretic peptide; type 2 diabetes; rs5068; insulin resistance; glucose dependent insulinotropic peptide; glucagon-like peptide-1; left ventricular hypertrophy;

    Abstract : Abstract The natriuretic peptides (NPs), namely atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and bran natriuretic peptide (BNP), which are secreted from cardiomyocytes in response to cardiac wall stress, play a significant role in the regulation of blood pressure, intravascular volume, and cardiac remodeling. Recently, NPs emerged as hormones with metabolic actions such as inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system and inhibition of inflammation, together with lipolysis and adipose tissue browning.

  5. 5. Nitrates and Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    Author : Erik Tingberg; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipid peroxidation; malondialdehyde; peptide; brain natriuretic peptide; left ventricular dysfunction; nitrates; acute myocardial infarction; heart failure; atrial natriuretic; diuretics; echocardiography; haemodynamic measurements; neurohumoral activation; diastolic dysfunction; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; oxidative stress; isoprostanes;

    Abstract : Use of beta-blockers and inhibitors of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) is established practice in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Clinical studies also suggest beneficial long-term effects of nitrates in CHF. READ MORE
