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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Olsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    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

    Abstract : Dementia is a state of permanent loss of cognitive function, most commonly affecting the elderly. With a rapidly growing aged population, the spectrum of disorders that lead to dementia is exerting an ever-increasing toll on patients, families and society alike. The most common dementing disorders are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. READ MORE

  3. 3. Left ventricular thrombus and stroke after acute myocardial infarction

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Thomas Mooe; Umeå universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; myocardial infarction; thrombolytic therapy; left ventricular thrombosis; risk factors; cerebral embolism and thrombosis;

    Abstract : A left ventricular thrombus develops in approximately 40% of patients following an anterior myocardial infarction. Embolization from these thrombi has been regarded as the most important cause of stroke following a myocardial infarction. READ MORE

    Abstract : Diabetes is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and is associated with increased mortality. Additionally, hyperglycemia, a common complication in acute stroke, is associated with poor outcome. READ MORE

  5. 5. Astrocyte metabolism following focal cerebral ischemia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna E Thoren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
