  1. 1. Ischemic heart disease in Kiruna : risk factors and sequelae

    Author : Torbjörn Messner; Kurt Svärdsudd; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Kiruna, a Swedish community situated 300 km north of the Arctic Circle, has a very high mortality in ischemic heart disease (IHD). Acase-control study was undertaken to find out if the risk factors for IHD or their impact differed from those in other populations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiovascular risk factors in aortic stenosis

    Author : Johan Ljungberg; Stefan Söderberg; Bengt Johansson; Peter Nilsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Valvular heart disease; aortic stenosis; bicuspid aortic valve; cardiovascular risk factors; hypertension; diabetes mellitus; smoking; hypercholesterolemia; obesity; shrunken pore; renal failure; Epidemiology; epidemiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Introduction: Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common hemodynamic significant valvular heart disease and affects about 2% of the population. The incidence increases with age. When symptoms of the stenotic aortic valve disease eventually occur the 2-year mortality exceeds 50%. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diabetes Mellitus and Cardiovascular Risk : epidemiology, etiology and intervention

    Keywords : Diabetes; Cardiovascular risk; epidemiology; myocardial infarction; stroke; fibrinolysis; insulin treatment; Diabetes; kardiovaskulär risk; epidemilogi; hjärtinfarkt; stroke; fibrinolys; insulinbehandling; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : Background: The Framingham Study from 1988 showed a heavy impact of diabetes mellitus (DM) on the risk and prognosis of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Several other studies have confirmed that DM is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) and that patients with DM have a poor prognosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel and Traditional Risk Factors for Coronary Artery Disease : Role of Coronary Artery Calcium, Lipidomics, Psychosocial Factors and Diet

    Author : Demir Djekic; Ole Fröbert; Annika Rosengren; Tuulia Hyötyläinen; Anna M. Nordenskjöld; Magnus Bäck; Örebro universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: The aim of the research reported in this thesis was to determine the association of novel and traditional risk factors with coronary artery calcium (CAC), a marker of subclinical coronary artery disease (CAD) in healthy individuals. In addition, we investigated the effects of a vegetarian, compared to a meat diet, on novel and traditional risk factors in patients with diagnosed CAD. READ MORE
